    You can either use aliases in your Home folder to replace the actual folders, or you can drag folders to your sidebar from the NAS. Here's what I'd do:

    1. Select the folder in your Home folder.
    2. Make aliases of them from the File menu.
    3. Drag the originals to the NAS.
    4. Remove the alias tag at the end of each of the aliases.
