ReadyShare Slow

I hooked up a WD MyBook to the router's USB 3 port.  When I try to copy files to the device, the write speeds are really slow.  Is this normal?  Any way to improve these speeds?

 

Thanks.

Hi MeadDogMan,

 

1. What is the speed you are getting?

2. Is the connection wired or wireless? If wireless, check wired connection and compare.

Hi JamesGL:  I copied a 12.5 gig folder from my Windows 10 PC to the USB 3.0 ReadyShare WD Elements 3 TB drive and averaged about 37 to 40 MB/second.  I copied the same 12.5 gig folder to a Seagate GoFlex Home 2 TB network attached drive and averaged about 30 MB/second.

 

Would you say the ReadyShare is averaging the correct USB 3.0 speed?

 

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi mead_dogman,

 

If you connect the 3TB drive directly to your computer and copy the file, what is the speed?

I've decided to stick with my current backup plans and abandon the ReadtShare as an option.
