How to Download Synology Assistant for Windows, Mac, Linux


With the recent redesign of their website, it’s nearly impossible to find out where to download Synology Assistant. After some digging around, I finally found out where it was hidden.

Lucky for you, I took the time to write this blog post to make your life easier. No frills. No BS. Download link below!

Synology Assistant download here!

Scroll down to the bottom of the list for the latest version. In addition to the latest version, all previous versions of the Synology Assistant are available too. On the resulting screen, click on your operating system:  Windows, Mac, Ubuntu, or Fedora. That’s it! Easy peasy.

Where Did Synology Assistant Go?

Since the redesign of the Synology website, most supplemental NAS software has seemingly gone missing. Links to this NAS software from Google are redirected to the Synology Download Center.

This would be okay, except Synology has categorized its download based on its products. For example, you must select your product type and model number to find any associated downloads. When you finally get to the page with your product, you won’t find any link to the Synology Assistant download. Further investigation through the drop down menus turns nothing up.

I finally found the download that I linked above by clicking on the All Downloads link as illustrated below.

This took me to the “Index of” page at By navigating to the root, you can then proceed to Tools then Assistant.

I’m not sure why Synology has hidden the link to download Synology Assistant and other such software. But at the very least, my hope is that this blog post has helped you find what you were looking for today. If it has, take a few seconds and let me know in the comments below.

  1. Almost literally computer lifesaving – thank you so much! I tried Synology three times to try and explain this and was met basically with arrogance and exasperation – because THEY had hidden the tools! I will not be buying Synology again when I need to update my server… Thanks again for posting.
