I use EX2 mostly for storing photos made by me. I mount EX2 share as windows drive and then work on photos (by network drive) in some graphic programs. When I process few photos I notice significant change in EX2 performance (for worse). Drive is unable to send data fster then 500kb/s. (I work on Canon RAW files which is about 30-40 mb each).
Main reason for this reduced performance is smbd proces (on EX2) which takes 100% of CPU and becouse of that reducing data processed. Is any solution to this ? This is very annoying issue, right now converting 1500 photos from RAW to JPG takes about 5 HOURS, becouse EX2 couldn’t send data fast enough.
If anyone have solution for this issue I would very appreciate for sharing such solution with me.
