Hi all!

Actually a simple question, what access rights should the user "Emby" obtain on the folders containing media (photos, videos, movies, etc)? Are these just read permissions, read and write permissions, or read, write and delete permissions... or do I give this system user full permissions? What I certainly don't want is the user Emby messing around with my media files (like just deleting tet). And what if I have to give Emby delete permissions, will this give me absolute certainty that (for example in case of a bug) this will not happen? In short, what rights does Emby need?

Thank you!

Hi, DSM 7 has a different permission setup then DSM 6 and lower versions so it's important to mentioned which versions of DSM you have installed on your Synology NAS.

The only permissions you should have to set for emby when switching to DSM 7 are the Shared Folder permissions with read/write access.  However, emby is now a "System internal user" so make sure you click the drop down box first before changing.  Any old emby local users can be deleted under DSM 7
