Scanning for changes on networked drive taking at least an hour

Scanning for changes is taking too long. How can I solve the problem? Am on Windows 10

The drive is not a local drive, but on a networked drive.

How to find the log files

Hi @jaduenas, I have emailed you guys. Thanks

Something similar happens to me.

I’m on Gigabit wired network, the drive is USB 3.0 drive connected to the router and published through Samba. It can give me up to 300 Mbps read when copying on Windows.

But rescanning by Insync also takes approx. 30-60 minutes. This happens every time I reconnect to the network or wake up the computer. I looked at wireshark logs and it issues a lot of SMB commands for all files that are in the synced folder.

Since I’m on Windows, I can’t use NFS, which might provide better performance.

So, the question is - is there a way to lower the network traffic by some batched querying?

OT: The drive also appears as missing in Insync when I’m connected from “outside” through a VPN. I can reach the drive normally from Explorer.
