I searched through the other forum posts, and could not find anyone with my situation, so forgive me if this has been asked before.
I have a large collection of jpgs that I want to access from various computers and tablets. The images are stored on an external hard drive connected to a windows-7 pc, and I am trying to copy them to my new 4tb mycloud. The problem is that the transfer speed is rediculusly slow, (usually around 1mg/sec), and heaven forbid if I try and do two things at once with the mycloud, it boggs down to as low at 50kb/sec. I have spoken ot wd tech support numerous times, with no solution, but I do know that my lan write speed is at least 100mg/sec to the mycloud, so I don’t think it has anything to do with the computer, or the network. The external hard drive can transfer jpgs to my “c” drive at around 20mgs/sec, incidentally,so I don’t think that is the bottlneck.
I have tried to compress the files, transfer them to the mycloud-which is way faster, but then uncompressing them is even slower than copying them to begin with.
Does anyone know of a way to optimize the mycloud to handle jpg images, or maybe converting the jpgs to another format that the mycloud can handle better? I am to the point where I am thinking of returning the mycloud to get my money back, if this is how slow it’s going to be.
Thanks for any help.
