Where to collect logs on NAS?

Each NAS has its own local storage for Sync's files (.sync folder with database, settings, logs, etc). You may find the logs (sync.log and all files) in the following directories depending on the NAS. If the mentioned path does not contain the logs, you may see the local storage in a config file (sync.conf) and check that storage for logs.

You can use any tool to get the logs or use our instruction.

Synology NAS sync.conf and sync.log are in  

Netgear ReadyNAS, sync.conf and sync.log are in

QNAP, sync.conf and sync.log are located on whatever volume the user choses to install the application.
/share/HDA_DATA/.qpkg/ResilioSync/storage where instead of MD0_DATA, it may be HDA_DATA, HDB_DATA, ...

Seagate,  sync.log is located in /media/internal_1/rainbow/
The config file (config.json) is located in /media/internal_1/rainbow/resilio-sync-xxxxxxxx/opt/resilio-sync/config.json
Note that "xxxxxxx" after "resilio-sync-" stand for the container ID which is generated randomly, so it'll be different on each NAS.
Also, instead of 'internal_1" you may have "internal_2", etc. based on naming convention.

Drobo, config file and logs are located in:
