Slowww Download

Post by Nephilim70 » Fri Aug 03, 2018 9:56 am

Hello all,

First time here. This may have been asked before, but I am experiencing super slow download speeds. It was always slow, but now it is super slow at 46kbs per second. I'm trying to download a 1gb file and it looks like its going to take a full day.

I an accessing my Qnap through the cloud from a different country. Both places have high speed - 300Mbits per second. It like the server has reached a limit andis being choked.

Any suggestions?

I guess I would login into the NAS via MyQnapCloud and check logs,etc.

The NAS being infected by malware is one possible cause for extreme slowdowns.
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!
