Android sync files from and illustration synology

Hi,

To which folders should I sync on my android in order to have it s applications to pickup the files?

For example I have music which I can sync with Synology cloud station to the sd card of my galaxy s5 but where on the sd card should I sync them so the android app music will add it to it's list/view the music files?

This section is for music/video files only: All files in all folders are "seen" by the native Music/Video app (unless you block it with a .nomedia file).
So basically, just put it where ever you want.
They're seen immediately, or if indexing is late, just start it one time through the file manager.

Other files > depends on the app itself

I do know that. My question was where those exact locations are for those apps or where I can see them.

Btw, Synology cloudstation won't let me save on sd card.I selected sd card but it saved it on internal storage/ignored this setting.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Synology won't save to the SD card, probably because it has no access to the SD card (Android 4.4 security). Your only option is to keep using Internal Storage and hope one day Android or Synology figure out this security issue (probably won't).

So then Cloudsync is not an option. Are there other options to sync?

KimputerCommented:
As I said, it's an Android security setting (which you can't change), and only a REALLY select handful of programs can fully use the SD card (the base programs in your Android, File Explorer, Gallery, Music, Videos). There are practically no other programs currently that can use the SD card fully, and hence if syncing to SD card is needed, you're mostly out of luck (for now, Lollipop will restore SD card access as almost before)

You're sure about Lollipop? When will it be available in Belgium?

Lollipop will have some SD card access restored in a more secure way (before KitKat, every app had full access). As I said, best guess, 1 to 3 months.
