My 6TB is extraordinarily slow - took 2 weeks to tfr 4GB files connected to a GB router. Now accessing it is frustratingly slow - any more than 2 folders deep and its takes minutes to chug to open the folder. I have tried to access by static IP (set up router for it) but it simply takes me to an empty public folder (that I didn’t set up).
Can you access non public folder via an IP address and would this be faster that the WD discovery way?
So far, I:ve had nothing but frustrations with this NAS.
