Lightroom backup to network drive is very slow in Windows 10

Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, Lightroom's backup has become very, very slow.

I keep my catalog on a second SSD in my system and back it up to my network attached storage. This worked very well in Windows 7. Typical backup took about 1-2 minutes. After upgrading to Windows 10, the same task takes about 10 minutes.

I know my NAS and network are working fine. Any other transfers work at optimal speed (about 120MB/second). Even within Lightroom, I drag folders to my NAS and they move there at full speed. It is just the backup feature that crawls.

Is this a known bug or am I doing something wrong?
