I installed the syzygy tablebases from here: http://oics.olympuschess.com/tracker/index.php
With 3-4-5 and 6 wdl I'm fine.
But the 6 dtz isn't read by the computer.
I've installed them on an SSD disk.
Can a friend help me?
Thank you in advance.

How do you know?

Are they in the same folder as the others?

I use Arena GUI.
It shows me the indication: Found 0 Tablebase.
Initially I had installed them in different folders and separated them with ;
Then I placed them in the same folder, but it's the same thing.
In total reads 510 Tablebase.

I'm sorry about the bad English.
I use a translator.
I hope you understand me.

Yes.

https://github.com/official-stockfish/Stockfish   SyzygyPath {same for all engines}

Path to the folders/directories storing the Syzygy tablebase files. Multiple directories are to be separated by ";" on Windows and by ":" on Unix-based operating systems. Do not use spaces around the ";" or ":".

Example: C:\tablebases\wdl345;C:\tablebases\wdl6;D:\tablebases\dtz345;D:\tablebases\dtz6

It is recommended to store .rtbw files on an SSD. There is no loss in storing the .rtbz files on a regular HD. It is recommended to verify all md5 checksums of the downloaded tablebase files (md5sum -c checksum.md5) as corruption will lead to engine crashes.

510 is good for 3,4,5 & 6.
It does not go up if you add the dtz later:
Syzygy files: 1 WDL (same name) file + 1 DTZ (same name) file = 1 Tablebase

My Arena GUI, all Syzygy in same folder, screenshots:
(in Arena some engines print no "Found..." even though they do find/is okay)

I found for Arena, keeping each type of tablebase consolidated in its own folder was the most effective

the folders are more convenient for distribution rather than deployment
