ReadyNAS NV+ v2 Slow MAC browsing

Hi,

 

We have a couple of Macs running high sierra. Browsing shares on the ReadyNAS is very slow, can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

 

Gaz.

The NV+ is end-of-life, so there isn't a lot that can be done.

 

What firmware are you running?  Are you using AFP or SMB?

Hi Stephen,

 

Thanks - Firmware is 5.3.1.1. Both SMB and AFP are enabled, browsing shares is slow using both.

You could try disabling SMB signing on the Mac.  https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205926

Hi Stephen,

Thanks again. I tried this, it didn't seem to make any difference though.

I have this setup and don’t notice mac slower than windows machines. What do you experience when browsing vs transferring files?

Hi Tony,

 

Maybe it's slow because the share is large, 6811 folders (and growing) each with many subfolders, about 4tb in total.It's NTFS formatted, maybe that's why it's slow?

Internal volumes are EXT formatted.

 

The only way it can be NTFS formatted is if you are sharing a USB drive connected to the NAS.  Is that what you are doing?

OK thanks, right click, properties in Windows says it's NTFS. No, it's an internal volume.t's really fast browsing in Windows Explorer, just slow on the Macs.
