Though files had no format. I just knew these are the pictures because I copied them from my pc under the folder of Pictures 2017.

All right, some secrets are still remaining:

- Plain shared folder permissions on the NAS, or had Advanced Folder Permissions in place?

- Copied using File Station, USB One Touch Copy, or Windows Explorer?

Will spend some time on this for you.

This is happening to me as well. I'm a pro photographer and need to put RAW files on the NAS for our workflow. I'm ingesting the photos with an app called Photo Mechanic - which could be the culprit, not sure how this stuff works (I'm talking with them as well).

I have a TS-228. My path is USB 3.0 card reader > my computer > Photo Mechanic ingesting to NAS.

If I drag the files straight from the CF card to the NAS folder it works fine. Basically the same path minus Photo Mechanic - which leads me to believe it's PM that's the problem. However, I don't know if an app can set/change attributes like that or if it's a windows thing. I'm hoping maybe there is a windows setting I can change somewhere to prevent the setting of the hidden attribute.

Any help or insight on this would be much appreciated!

Chris

The card reader is connected to the NAS or to the computer?

I've managend one occurrence of a sinlge hidden file on the NAS with Photo Mechanic - all other attempts had no hide flag set. Yes - applications can change/set the attributes of course.

Thanks for the reply! The card reader is attached to my computer. I spent a bunch of time with support at Camera Bits (photo mechanic) since I made this post and they are sure it's not them. I'm not so sure. I can navigate to the CF card, highlight raw files, and drag to the folder on the NAS - the files get transferred with no issues. If I use PM to ingest to the same folder it marks every file hidden. I'm ignorant on this stuff, but it seems to me like dragging the files is the same path minus PM - card reader > computer > router > NAS. So wouldn't it mean that it's PM that's causing the issue?

I have tried everything I can think of and every tip I have read on the internet in regards to permissions etc. Nothing works!

I have a ticket in to Qnap support but their response speed is a little underwhelming.

I'm having this problem as well on my QNAP with PhotoMechanic. Strange thing we discovered that may help us uncover what's wrong here. ...
If we drag an image from one folder to another in PhotoMechanic, it copies just fine. If we use the Photomechanic right click menu Copy command, the file is transferred but is marked as hidden.

I never did get this resolved. Qnap support was no help, and PM says it's not their app causing the issue. All I needed to use it for was to dump files from shoots so they could be accessed from multiple computers to be culled, so I ended up buying a USB 3 external raid enclosure. Works great, as fast as i need it to be, and best of all no issues.
