Weird performance from my NAS

I have a very simple single hard drive Xpenology NAS that i built a couple of years ago as a straightforward media storage/server. I've never had any problems until now.

Basically, if i try and copy a file from the NAS to me desktop PC the transfer speed is about 2mb/s.
If i transfer a file from my desktop PC to the NAS the transfer speed is about 100mb/s.
If copy a file from my NAS to another folder on the NAS the transfer speed is about 45mb/s.

In the last copy of weeks the NAS has suffered an improper shutdown due to power outages, could that have screwed things up?

Thanks

Let's clear something up first.
Are you talking about megabits (Mb) or Mega Bytes(MB)
If your talking megabits, that's super slow no matter what way you look at it.
Now if Mega Bytes (which I'm guessing since I used to run Xpenology myself), need some more investigation. There should be a HDD tool in DSM that you can load up and run some test. Holler back to this thread if you need more info.

The problem is confined to windows explorer when copy/pasting from a mapped drive on the nas to my desktop SSD. If i go in to my Synology nas and 'download' the same file shown in my screenshot i get the full 100mb/s speed.

Hmm.. I can't help you there fam. Did you ask the xpenology forums? Maybe there is a fix? I've moved to UNRAID and found it 100000000000000000 times better than a hacked bootleg Synology nas.

I dont think its the NAS. I have a spare windows desktop machine which i've plugged in and it transfers just fine. There's clearly something screwy on my main machine.

I actually went the other direction and found it a lot better for my use .

As for your issue, try raid scrubbing?

Oh for sure. It all depends on what you need it for. I just found any off the shelf Synology nas way to under powered and I got tired of worrying if the next DSM update will break my nas and then have to wait for Jun to update/create a new loader.
The only real thing I miss is the DSM UI. Ughhh it's a beautiful thing lol.

Oh for sure, I wont ever update lol. I used to use unraid for the KVM, but then got fed up with it and just installed esx and passed my storage controller through to my synology vm.
