I had to undelete a bunch (don’t ask…), so figured I’d get a 3TB Mycloud to manually undelete to, and later will use it as an auto backup. Attached it to a gigabit switch, which the computer (Windows 7 Ultimate) is also wired to. Both computer and Mycloud have static IP’s. Took days to undelete whatever I found onto a new folder on the Mycloud. Then and now file operations are frighteningly slow:
Takes ~3 min to load the file list in Windows Explorer;
Once a folder copy back to the computer is started, it “thinks” about the operation for over a minute, then copies very slowly, ~8 MB/ *minute* (not second). (Maybe slightly better on larger files);
Some folders fail to copy, saying “The specified network name is no longer available”, sometimes retrying multiple times works;
Connecting to the Dashboard takes > 7 mins, and Content Scan usually errors.
I tried a different switch, and tried updating to the current firmware v03.04.01-219. I also tried copying from Mycloud to a hard drive attached to its usb port, both by file copy & paste (no change) and by Safepoint (which I understand uses rsync, and was even slower).
Any suggestions? I see a lot on the forum and the web about various aspects of slow performance…
