I want to copy data (~800MB) from my WD Slim external HDD to a share which I have made in a 2tb WD red hdd installed in My Cloud EX2 Ultra. My Cloude EX2 Ultra is connected to my VDSL modem+Wifi Router via ethernet cable provided in the box,
My PC is connected VDSL modem+router via wireless connection
1st Try.) I connected my WD slim external HDD to USB3 port on my PC and then copied the whole content of external hdd and pasted it in the “Main Share”(the share which I created during setup of My Cloud EX2 ultra).
I was getting a transfer speed of 6 MB/s. and the transfer time was coming out to be more then a day.
2nd Try.) I connected the WD Slim External HDD directly into in of the 2 USB 3 ports present on the My Cloud EX2 Ultra. This time the transfer speed initially was >1MB/s, which after some time stablised to ~4MB/s. The estimated transfer time this time came out to be more the 1 day again.
What am I doing wrong. Where is the bottleneck in my setup. Why am I getting so much high transfer time and low transfer speeds.
