Whenever we talk about Synology, its top consumer NAS enclosures usually come to mind. While the hardware does play an important role in network storage, it’s the software that defines your experience. And Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) is among the most feature-packed NAS operating systems out there. After its major facelift last year, DSM 7.2 is the next big update, brimming with features that users have been asking for a long time. Here is everything you need to know about DSM 7.2.

Everything new in Synology DSM 7.2 and other feature updates

With the upcoming DSM 7.2 update, Synology is adding a much sought-after feature — full volume encryption. This is a major step up from the current shared folder-level encryption, allowing full data protection of your NAS. With the new encryption system in place, there won’t be any file path limit either, which is a limitation right now if you have a lot of nested folders. Even with encryption applied to the entire volume, Synology is promising a significant performance boost over what we have now.

The company is additionally making its Google Drive alternative, Synology Drive, a much more lucrative option for those with large teams. Administrators will have the option to remotely wipe a computer that has been compromised or stolen to avoid data theft. For end users, they'll see speedier file indexing when they make bulk transfers. The current implementation can take hours depending on the amount of data, but Synology claims the update will make things 10x faster. It's an impressive claim, but we'll need to do some testing on our end to see if it proves true.
