Let me start by getting my apologies out of the way first. Although I consider myself quite IT/Computer savvy, I do not have a great amount of experience with Networks and NAS.
I have setup my DNS320 without too much hassle. I have two 2tb Hitachi Deskstar 5K3000 hard disks installed in a Raid 1 Configuration. I have transferred all my media and some other copies of folders from other computers I have as backups. Right now I am using around 66%, 1.3TB
It took a long time to load all my data. I would say something in the range of 48+ hours, so not incredibly fast there. I tried via both USB and over a network switch.
When accessing the media files, even over wireless, for example playing a avi file on my laptop, the speed is great, no delays / buffering etc.
I have tried and failed so far to get Dynamic DNS working, but that’s on the back burner for now.
1. When I enable UNpN I can only add the volume 1 root folder. I would like to be able to select folders below this level. It maybe because I may have manually ‘shared’ the volume1 folder and therefore you don’t have the option of sharing lower level folders? It doesn’t look like it though.
Can anyone else add specific folders when setting up UNpN or offer any suggestions. Or is this how it is supposed to be?
2. Once I have added the folder, I select Refresh All to build the media library. I have tried this twice now and it is incredibly slow. It seems to be building it at around 2% an hour, so will take 50 hours. This is one of the reasons I wanted to only add some selected folders to reduce the files it was trying to add to the library.
Can anyone else share their experiences and/or offer any advice on setting up their UNpN media library?
Many thanks for any tips / comments / suggestions.
