Well today I will teach you how to install the latest mega.syno on your Synology NAS in less than 30 seconds directly through the Task Scheduler option. It’ll be over in a couple of seconds and it’s essentially child’s play.

Mega (stylized in uppercase as MEGA) or Mega.nz is a cloud storage and file hosting service offered by Mega Limited, a company based in Auckland, New Zealand. The service is offered primarily through web-based apps. Mega mobile apps are also available for Android and iOS. Mega is known for its large 50 GB storage allocation for free accounts. You can easily use Docker in your Synology NAS and mega.syno container to sync your MEGA data into your NAS.
