So I have spent a while reading the various threads around performance and slowness but none seem to address the sort of issue that I am seeing.
If I simply want to transfer a 6Mb picture from my PC to the MBL it takes about 5 mins. The claimed transfer rate is 28.4kb (no that is not a typo) This device seems to be ridiculously slow!!!
This is how I am setup and what I have already done:
1 Gbps NIC
1 Gbps Switch (even if I were using a 10/100 switch I would expect better performance than 28.4Kb!)
The PC and Duo are both connected to the switch with very short CAT5 cables. I have replaced both cables and the switch and seen no difference. I have tried turning off the firewalls and all anti-virus and seen no difference. I have tried changing the storage mode to see if that makes a difference and no it doesn’t. I have all the services turned off iTunes etc. I am using the correct Network protocols etc.
I have 200Gb of photos to back up and that will take weeks at 28.4Kb any ideas where to go next?
