Slow copying TO my DrivePool
Just installed 1.2.7226 and its in the process of duplicating/balancing - although I migrated over 4 of my WHS v1 drives with the files already duplicated so was expecting the duplicating process to go faster than if DP had to make dupe copies.
I'm trying to copy a bout 70 GB's of data - via a Gigabit network - from my Laptop to a Network Share - and the average speed is only in the 3.2-4.0 MB/s range. TeraCopy is reporting it will take almost 5 hours to copy! I'm seeing much faster speeds copying FROM the Network shares.
I stumbled on an old thread noting this: "go into the stablebit drivepool settings in the dashboard and enable all of the direct file i/o and fast i/o options and try again. If they were unticked you will see a large speed increase" - but a later post notes those settings are not accessible any longer? Am I missing something in some setting somewhere - or is this b/c DP is actively duplicating/balancing - or is this the norm copy speed to the DrivePool? I have several hundred GB's of files I need to move to my server - but at this rate, it's going to take days.
