I am having a bunch of issues with my My Cloud 3TB refusing to create a Safepoint to my My Book 3TB. I am on my next round of troubleshooting with Level 2 support.
However, I have a question. I was told that the Safepoint backup uses a Linux protocol, which is why it is so slow. BUT, if I just did a normal copy/paste from the My Cloud to the My Book, which are directly connected via USB 3, it would run at USB 3 speeds.
So, I went to my laptop (connected to the network via WiFi) and told the My Cloud to copy some files to the My Book. It is running over 1,000x slower than USB 3 speeds (500KB/sec vs. 640MB/sec). Is this an issue with the My Cloud USB port or is the data really getting relayed through my laptop via WiFi and not actually directly copying from one drive to the other?
If it is the latter, can someone tell me how to get it to copy at USB 3 speeds?
