SyncBackSE Poor Speed

Post by adzify106 »

I have purchased SyncBackSE to perform a standard mirror of my LAN Drive to an External HDD.
I have a 1Gbps Ethernet connection between my laptop and the network drive and a Superspeed USB3.0 connection to my External HDD.
I am running the latest version of SyncBackSE v7.6.36.0 and it's installed on Windows 10 Home Edition 64-bit.

If I copy all the folders on the network drive and paste (ctrl+a / ctrl+c / ctrl-v) using Windows Explorer the transfer speeds average 80 MB/s with bursts up to 100 MB/s.
Using my current Syncback profile I am getting an average of 2.8Mbps = 0.35 MB/s ?

What's up with that?

In settings under 'Copy/Delete' for the 'File Copy Method' I am using the 'Standard Windows File Copying'.
I have setup the next profile to run as 'Windows Explorer File Copy' method to see if there is any noticeable difference, I'm tipping there won't be but I hope I'm very wrong.
