Can anyone please inform me how I can achieve (more or less) constant speeds while transferring files from a Windows8.1 PC to a MyCloud 2TB HD. The PC is connected via a Gigabit NIC and router to the WD MyCloud.
When I am transferring files now, my xfer speeds fluctuate between 65 MB/s and 5 MB/s.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks very much,
There is no fast and hard rule. It depends on so many things, from hardware to cables, routers, NICs, type of files (small, large), anti virus, firewall, apps running in the background, other connected devices, and also depends how you are copying and how you are measuring.
Are you measuring one file or bunch of files and what are you using to measure it? What is your newtork infrastructure?
on my 3TB (don’t know if same on 2TB) but I can read 7.5 GB in under 2 minutes (at 68.4 MB/s 1.58s) always. I can write the same amount in 2:30 minutes @53MB/s. the files are a mxiture of few bytes per file to 3.5 GB per file. This is on an old machine (7 years knackered PC with only Sata 2 and 1 GB nic.
So the drive is capable but depends on your setup. It will always fluctuate but not bu this much as yours.
