Synology setup hasn't changed since our last review. We basically have a wizard that guides you through setup, seen above.

DSM setup takes around 5-10 minutes depending on drives and starts with setting up server names and passwords.

The desktop for DSM6.2 houses a few icons to the left for installing packages and looking over your files in File Station. At the top left, you can click the four-square icon to get further options.

Inside the control panel, we have access to shared folders and user/group creation, network and security settings along with update and restore functionality.
