I like to find out why reading folders in my network drive (My Cloud Home) takes 2-3 seconds. Everything works perfectly for Dopus 12 otherwise.
Is there any particular setting that I missed out?
I tried reading the posts but have not managed to find a solution.
Thank you for replying.
It's turned off.
I checked the time to display the folder contents again.
It takes approximately 3-6 seconds to display folders. For a folder with more than 100 subfolders, it takes more than 8 seconds and sometimes Dopus seems to hang for a few seconds before the folder contents are displayed.
File explorer takes less than 0.5 secs to display the folders.
It's very strange. I uploaded a file to the Network drive and the issues I mentioned disappeared. I will proceed to purchase this program.
Thank you for this excellent piece of software. I like the sync feature most.
I also notice something interesting.
If I just leave File Explorer open (and it might not even be accessing the network drive), Dopus works fine in the network drive. When I close the File Explorer app, Dopus exhibits the mentioned issues.
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to review the logs.
I tested other software like Xplorer and it's exactly the same scenario.
You just need File Explorer to be open (and not even accessing the network drive).
It is really strange.
Let's close this issue and move on.
Good idea? Like a NAS for non-technical people. Plug it in, scan the QR code on the back. Make an account. And there you go.
Gone wrong? Anything beyond "let's save a data on a remote drive" is ... more or less problematic.
You can add users, but cannot manage as superuser.
You cannot use the build in backup tool (don't recall the name), it makes the passively cooled device spin the HDD's like 24/24 7/7 for weeks .
The Plex server is there... but not well maintained. Decoding on the fly is not possible. Streaming anything beyond 1080p is nearly impossible because it lacks speed (to Nvidia Shield).
You cannot backup to the NAS with a tool like Acronis, because it won't recognize the network drive as network drive due to a proprietary driver in Windows.
Probably the lag in reading out a folder can be related. Any other explorer will probably (educated guess) have the same issues.
I ended up pulling the 2 x 8tb drives out (WD reds) and buying a Synology case. The price I paid for the My Cloud Home was less than would I have bought two seperate WD Reds. I trashed the beautiful designed case. Damn shame.
