Slow Transfer Rate from the HMNHD to USB Port

Post by melkhodary » Mon Dec 19, 2011 6:22 am

Dear All,

I need to know why the Transfer Rate from the HMNHD to any HDD attached to the USB Port is slow, i can see a Transfer Rate doesn't exceed 1.3 MB/Sec
I am accessing the HMNHD using SSH and running Magic Commander to do the copy from the HMNHD to the mounted USB HDD and i face this Slow Transfer Rate
Does anybody notice this or face this ? what is the Solution ?

Thanks a lot
Mohamed

NTFS disks? Try fat, or better yet, ext2

This will require that i reformat the USB Drive to ext2 or ext3 ? am I right ?

beside this, it won't be read on Windows easily without special software to do that

Thanks
Mohamed
