I got a DS212j to move my iTunes off of my computer, and allow me to share my music between computers on my network as well as do some file sharing, but the even with a 1000 base T network, having the DS212J mounted on my Mac has slowed it down to such an extent that I am copying back all of my music and going to take the Synology offline.
My finder has been beachballing constantly and my computer runs incredibly slow, and the only way to speed it back up is to dismount the DS212j!
I am so pissed and frustrated right now as I am basically out all the money that i spent. Even getting a new domain so I could serve my music, but it just isn't worth having my computer run so incredibly slowly!
At first I was hoping it was just the CloudSync, but I uninstalled that and everything has still been moving at a crawl. I have found the only way to speed things up is to dismount the server.
What is going on? Why is it so incredibly slow on my mac? The actual upload and download speed does not seem bad, but what it does to my computer having it connected is incredible. I have never seen my computer so incredibly slow!
