• File fails during upload to NAS

    My client machine has been running Windows 7 64-bit and I'm trying to copy a small file over to my NAS device. I've begun to notice that usually one out of five uploads are successful.

  • Slow Wi-Fi performance when doing rsync from Mac to NAS

    I've noticed that when I try to do a rsync from my Mac to my NAS, it runs serious slow upload speeds. On my files that are 20 MB+, it runs very slow. But when I disable my Wi-Fi and connect through an Ethernet cable, the upload speed is great. Is the problem with the Wi-Fi? If not, what should I do?

    I'm using Lightroom on a NAS and I understand that it can run on both a PC and laptop, as long as both aren't running at the same time. But does anyone know if I can run it on a shared set of images between a Windows PC and Mac? Will Lightroom prohibit this? I would appreciate any help available.

    I have roughly about 1 TB of data as of today with plenty more to go (I'll get to 2 TB in the near future). It's mainly encoded videos from my DVDs and I'm wondering what's the best way to go about backing all of it up. Would a NAS suffice?
