Copy speed between partitions

Hi there,

I have this Mycloud partitioned in 3 parts for organisation and sharing access. Why is it that if I copy a file like a movie from one partition to the other, the writing speed is no more than 2,7MB/sec?
Is there anyway to improve this?


True partitions? Or shares? How did you create them?
If you are comfortable with linux, you could ssh into Mycloud:

mv /original/file/path /new/file/path

True partitions I believe… They are mapped as drives on my laptop, so I think true partitions…
I know nothing about Linux, sorry…

If you have a single drive MyCloud. Then both partitions are on the same disk. As you copy or move the file from one partition to another. The disk heads have to move back and forth between the two partitions.
