I recently purchased a 8TB ShareSpace (RAID 5) to attach to my home network.
My computer is a quad-core system with 8gb of ram, with 2TB Western Digital SATA HDs. The data is transferring through a gigabit connection to a Cisco E3000 router.
The transfer rates are extremely slow; my back-up software Allway Sync fails when trying to transfer as it interprets the slow transfer rates as disk full. Copying files to the drive from my system through Windows Explorer is extremely slow, at speeds between 5mb/s - 10mb/s. The time estimated to transfer 1.6TB of data is approximately 93 hours. My current back-up using the WD Anywhere software is running equally slow. It has been running for 3hrs and has transferred 15GB.
Is this normal for a ShareSpace system? If so I will need to return it. If there are settings that could be adjusted, please let me know.
