At average speeds one gets with this drive, how long should it take to transfer about 500gb? I had a scratch disk for my audio and video editing die, and I’m transfering material to a newly built RAID 5 setup. The RAID works as advertised, but I’m not concinved the My Cloud is working as advertised. It is definitely slow for a gigabit connection and I was not aware it would transfer folders as zips until… it did. It would be nice to have an option, then of course, it would be even slower. On the other hand, I like options and settings handy as I’m performing an action. The software is terrible with this device.
I will not be keeping it. However, I have about 1.5 more tb to transfer, so any help would be appreciated.
