I have a WD EX2. I have both macs and pcs on my network. I have mapped the wd EX2 as a network drive on both my PC and Macs. It accesses the folders MUCH quicker on the PC for some reason. I am not even talking about transfer speeds. If I open a folder on my WD EX2 on my PC it shows the contents almost immediately. On my Macs (both a laptop and a iMac) it takes many many seconds for it to display the content and sometimes it doesn’t show it at all. I need to go back and go in the folder again. Any thoughts on my the performance differences are so different. My PC is even an older machine than my MacBook.
I even went as far as to do a direct connect of the Ethernet cable to my iMac and the performance in accessing the folders was not improved at all. This was very surprising.
Any help would be appreciated.
