TS-231 Slow iTunes SMB Performance

I've got a TS-231 setup as a JBOD, plugged into a GigE switch. Trying to use the iTunes 'consolidate library' function to move my content from local drives to the NAS. Machine is cabled as well - so should be gig-e everywhere. Connecting via SMB, have oplocks on, and up to SMB3 enabled.

It's taking 8 hours/TB to copy the file - at that rate, I've got two more days to get the library moved ...

Qsync on steroids

Hi there,

I've been trying to use Qsync to move heavy raw video files between post-production film houses. Being a bit creative here ;-)

We have now a 200Mb/s Internet link between the locations. A typical transfer will vary from 100MB to 500GB, and from 1 to hundreds of files.

The Qnap is in one of the location, the local transfer seemed to happen at a decent ...

QNAP, Mac and Chronsync : Best Practices

Hi All

Chronosync is a tool made by Econ Technologies: I personally work direclty with my Mac Pro on the QNAP, then sync the QNAP to my laptop(s) when I go out of ...

The share doesn't exist

using TS-459 pro with mac running latest version of Yosemite. Now lost ability to use shared folders on the NAS.
When I click on the (AFP) named NAS in the Finder it instantly shows me the shared folders. When I try to connect the dialog box greys out and I get the rotating 'circle of lines' until eventually I get a message saying the share doesn't exist on the server.
I've reset the NAS, ...

TS-469U AFP Missing folder in share

Good morning,

I'm currently experiencing a problem. Using QNAP TS-469U as a NAS on several Apple computers (Yosemite and lion mostly) certain folders disappear while using AFP.

I'm able to access these folders by connecting through SMB. I've already tried to show hidden folders in mac but they aren't shown BUT through the terminal i'm able to view them. I can also access these folders by browsing through QNAP file browser and FTP aswell.

My ...

AFP type attributes supported when using RSYNC

Hi All

This thread is basically about file sharing, even though it is motivated by an issue I noticed using RSYNC. So, I filed it here. If needed and people complain, I can move the thread to the Backup section, but I feel it belongs here.

So, the background is that I am just finishing transferring my data from a TS-459 Pro (OS 3.8.2) to a TS-470 Pro (OS 4.0.7). I am working in an ...
