    A .PAT file is used by Synology for its network-attached storage operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager. OS updates (and previous versions to DSM 7.0) can be installed onto a NAS enclosure manually by uploading the necessary .PAT file.
    What is a .PAT file?

    A .PAT file is used by Synology NAS enclosures for DiskStation Manager (DSM), the operating system.
