I am new My Cloud(about 1 month) user and trying to work from iMac (OS X 10.7.5). One of reason to buy NAS is to eliminate external HDD(using for TimeMachine storage) from my small table.
But after 1 month of using MyCloud (3Tb with last FW) I cant trust this device as TM. I’ve lost my backup accidentally twice after beautiful message " . . . Time Machine must create a new backup for you." And the worst thing is performance of TM on MyCloud – some time TM uploading fast but most cases it like phone modems speed.
I have total iMac HDD backup about 350Gb and creating new backup on MyCloud taking days – 2-3 day for preparing and 3 days for uploading 350GB. I have 1 Gbit router, NIC and link and I cant believe on that. More over my last update on 10 Gb uploaded 3 Days!!! With 20Kb/s speed (on Gb link )on Network monitor and I hear that HDD in NAS working hard and don’t sleeping. I understand that there may be a lot of small files, but that the NAS constantly writes? Indexing? Seems like antivirus working and checking every small file(I know that there is no AV here). Uploading of file to Public share at the same time is working pretty good - up to 30-50Mbs. what it can be(bad AFP release or TM simulation ) and when it will be fixed?
p.s. So I am still using external HDD as backup of backup because I don’t want to lose my personal data.
