Synology’s DSM 7.2.1-69057 Update 5 is available, should you have an eligible Synology NAS enclosure. This update for the popular network-attached storage (NAS) operating system doesn’t come with numerous improvements and changes. Still, upgrading to 7.2.1-69057 from older DSM versions is now more reliable.

What’s included in DSM 7.2.1-69057 Update 5

Because Update 5 doesn’t include many changes, I’ll include all the changelogs from prior 7.2.1-69057 releases. Here’s what was included with Update 5:
