Backup from NAS to NAS connected USB drives

Post by zekeblue »

As I type, I am running a SyncBack SE profile copying files from a Synology NAS to USB drive attached to the NAS.

Seems to work fine, but I wonder about speed. I'm getting about 25 MiBs/second. The NAS isn't the most powerful. Does this method route the copies from NAS => PC => USB Drive or does it go direct from NAS to USB Drive?

Anything to make this faster (other than the usual filtering, file selection, etc)?
