I am on macOS mojave, trying to copy a 850 gig iPhoto library to a ex2 ultra nas, running latest firmware. The drive is setup with dual 10tb WD red drives in raid 1. The nas is connected via a gb ethernet router/ethernet cable, and the NAS shares are mounted on the mac desktop via the finder/network panel, using the NAS admin login/pw.
The copy operation right now is announcing 3 days. (It was estimating 30 days at some point). The source library is coming from an internal SSD. I aborted the first copy attempt and rebooted the NAS, no success speeding things up. Also I cannot seem to be able to delete the aborted copy (it tells me one of the pictures in the partially copied lib is in use).
I was able to back up many files to the NAS yesterday at expected speeds for the gb ethernet.
This is not giving me warm feelings about my brand new nas… I was hoping for a reliable, safe workhorse file server for work (video/animation/photoshop, large files), personal files and time machine backups. Was I wrong ?
