I just wanted to do a fresh, clean setup on my Gen 1 MyCloud EX2. The NAS has 2 x 10TB Red drives (older, CMR, 5400 rpm) that I figured was probably pretty fragmented and junky. A quick restore took about 10 min but I figured, what the heck, I’ll do a full restore. Took 24 hours! Not sure what the difference is - anybody know?
EDIT: I’ve just finished backing up my main computer to the EX2. I noticed on my Synology DS218play with 2 10 TB WD Gold drives, the average transfer speed was ~100MBPS. On the EX2, the average transfer speed was half that (~50MBPS). The EX2 has half the RAM (512MB) of the DS218play (1GB). Do you think this is the reason for the slower transfer? Or is there something else I’m missing?
