I`m going to post my issue in this thead because it sounds very very similar. Sorry if I am hijacking…
I bought a 3 TB MyCloud on Saturday and immediately updated the firmware. I have it connected to my computer routed through an ASUS RT-N56U gigabit router using two short cat5e cables. My ethernet adapter on my computer has been confirmed as gigabit.
I started a backup of 1.6 TB from my hard drive using SmartWare and have only backed up 962 gigs since I started 76 hours ago. This is insane.
SmartWare will not show you transfer speeds but when I check my Win 7 Resource Monitor, it shows that I am transferring at a range of of 5,000,000 to 10,000,000 bytes/sec. 10 Mbps is pretty bad for a top end, right?
Look, I am an average guy wanting to backup his music, familty videos, and family photos. I’ve read the first five pages on this forum and have seen postings about “workarounds” etc. I am not prepared to run scripts and attempt other mods and such. Am I off base here? Should I just be returning this MyCloud and looking at something else? Have I missed a setting in my configuration?
I’ve tried disconnecting the internet from my router to ensure no wireless devices are running and it has no impact on my transfer speed from what I can tell.
