So I've been using my 1TB (blue rings) for a couple years, using it as storage for movies and pictures. It's ALWAYS been super slow, like 1mb/s.
How do I speed it up without losing my old data? The media on their has been with me for years and I don't want to lose it. I pretty much bought it and then hooked it up to my network and mapped it to my old laptop. I recently got a new PC and want to transfer a lot of those files locally. I don't know the first thing about any of this so some help would be appreciated.
I read through a lot of the really useful info here, but I don't know if it will erase my current data or anything like that.
Also, just recently the NAS will just stop working after about 30 minutes of non-use, I have to restart it to get it going again.
