Painfully slow file access?
« on: December 30, 2017, 11:03:03 am »
I have a LS421DE50E with 2 Toshiba DT01ACA3, 3Tb drives configured in a Raid 1 array. Currently using 850Gb.  Raid scanning is run once a month.  Running NO servers. Firmware is up to date.   The NAS is hardwired to my router and pings wirelessly on average at 4 ms. 

If I turn the NAS off and then back on, file access is pretty quick but in about a day or so, just building a directory file list is excruciatingly slow.  I just tried to bring up a small txt file and it took about 15 seconds to open and I was already in the directory!

I realize defrag is not an option but anyone have any idea what may be going on?

Does it happen on multiple clients?
**A single copy of data, even on a RAID array, is NOT a backup! Hard drive failure is not a question of IF, but WHEN! Don't take my word for it, take Google's!**
