Hi bkxit,

 

May I know what is the OS of the computer? Do you also get the same problem when you try it on other computers?

 

You can also try temporarily disabling the security software on your computer and see if you will still get the same issue.

 

Regards,

Not sure if you disabled it on the router, on the NAS, or in Windows...

 

But I suggest disabling it on both the PC and the NAS, and see if that makes any difference.

 

If the PC and the NAS are on the same network, it might also be worth connecting the PC to a different network (perhaps a mobile phone hotspot), and see if that behaves differently. 

 

If you haven't confirmed that you can access the NAS through the readycloud web portal, then I suggest doing that.

 

FWIW, you could also look into switching to something like FreeFileSync (at least for now).

Yes.  

 

FWIW, it's not a service I use myself, so I generally can't offer much advice.

Hi All.

 

               Pleased to say all is now working again !!!!

 

Not too sure if its a coincidence but i did fully remove my NAS from the cloud service last night.

Then re boot and re add it...
