I have been having problems with safepoint and was elevated to level 2 support who suggested plugging my safepoint destination drive, a MyBook, into PC usb and running ChkDsk. I did this and it said it fixed errors. So I decided to format the MyBook.
I am now running a Safepoint with the MyBook plugged back into the MyCloud USB port. My thinking is the speed at which the safepoint is created has nothing to do with my PC or router since the MyBook is connected directly.
So it has been 7 hours and has copied 260GB out of 800GB (32%). So I’m assuming the complete process is going to take about 20-24 hours. The files are nothing out of the ordinary; about 3,000 pictures, 150 various video clips, and 400 movies stored as mp4s.
Does that amount of time seem correct?
