I am experiencing PAINFULLY slow transfer speeds when transferring larger files from a Macbook Pro to my ROCK 64 NAS which has 2 x Seagate 4TB USB 3 Drives connected to it.
I am using AFS over Wifi and it is taking HOURS to transfer 20GB of files and is not much faster over a wired Ethernet connection to be honest,I'm really not sure why this is.I am a complete Network novice so have no idea why this may be.Transfers start relatively fast then quickly drop in speed and regularly stall
Is there a way to connect a drive to the Rock64 and manually copy files over to the drives to circumnavigate this issue?
My main purpose is to use the Rock64 as a media server for movies and iTunes as well as a backup device, with the idea being that one 4TB is used to backup the data on the other.One thing I really want to do is store my main iTunes Library on their (which is 200GB +) however transferring such a large file seems impossible and I also keep getting an errror -30 message when doing so which indicates that one of the file names in the iTunes library may not be compatible with Linux maybe?
This is proving somewhat frustrating as not only did this setup cost about £300 but I was rather enthused about finally being able to have a custom server of my own which would be fast and stable,at the moment it is not really even usable...
