NSA320S painfully slow/corrupt file copying
I am at my wits end as to what to do next. I am hoping someone has some idea as to what I might be ble to do to resolve my current problem. Currently the only way I can successfully transfer files to the NAS box is to copy them to a USB stick and use the copy function button on the machine. Once residing on the machine I can move them within a "directory e.g. public" to another location "on public in this example" but not to "video". To enable this I have to go into settings and change the default settings. I have no problems accessing files on the drive to stream to a connected TV or to a laptop. My problem is only in being able to copy or move files using windows explorer from the laptop to the NAS box or vice versa.
The NAS320S has one 4TB HDD installed which shows up as 3.58TB in windows explorer. Currently there is 78.4GB free left on the drive. The operating system on the laptop is Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit.
Today I took my laptop and NAS box to try on my daughters network to see if it would make any difference. It didn't, endless waiting for Windows to "discover" the file to be copied when I could plainly see that Windows already new about it. Interestingly although the file syestem is "discovering" and the file transfer is reported as 0 bytes per second, bytes are being transferred. Even when the operation is cancelled (which causes explorer to stop reponding) bytes are still being transferred until the full file is transferred albeit in a corrupt manner.
For what its worth this problem has only arisen recently.
