slow copy: 8tb in 30 days

Recommended Posts

I'm swapping out a 8tb drive for a 12tb.  I did the manual removal, as suggested in the help files


THe new drive is currently attached via USB3, as I'm all out of sata ports.  Its copying at 2.2mb/s on average.  I suspect its slow with small files. 

DB is only version 2.4 (because I'm a believer in if it aint broke...)

Is it safe to stop the copy from the old drive, and update DB?  Will this likely help? I'm on windows 1903.

Personal feeling is I've not really seen a performance difference between versions of DB, they're slower than JBOD copies. That being said you can open a support ticket and ask the question about stopping the copy / updating DB / restarting the copy.


I'm guessing you really wanted this in the DB section and not the Anvil section??

@gethin No reason why you can't stop and restart the copy of you're doing it in Windows/File Explorer.

I'm running v3.7 on my 2 servers without any issues. 

The latest versions have a faster enumeration of folders, so you may well see a speed increase.
