Using Synology NAS w/Lightroom Classic causing corruption.

As other people in my photography group have, I implemented a Synology NAS recently. It seemed OK at first but then my catalog started getting corrupted constantly. I have it set up so that everything on my hard drive is mirrored to the NAS (that includes the catalog). Is this what is causing the corruption? Do I need to store the catalog on a separate drive so it does not get uploaded to the NAS? I need to fix this ASAP as I have been unable to work in LightRoom for months due to this issue.

and you will see:

Can I store or share a catalog on a network?

No, you can't store catalogs on a network but you can store or share your photos on a network. Smart Previews let you edit your photos in Lightroom Classic even when you are disconnected from the network or when your computer is disconnected from the drive that has your photos.

Storing the catalog on a NAS will eventually corrupt the catalog. Plenty of postings in this community on that.
