I have add'ed a little over 10k pictures (raw) to lightroom - the add process went just fine, but the sync process is painfully slow. I am on a fairly new system, hardwired and with a fiber 500/500Mbit connection, so I know I have the ressources. 

With this speed it will be weeks before the sync has done its job.

What is wrong?

I have genereated a log file - cant see how to post it :-)

How many images are left to sync?
How many images sync per hour?
If you use speedtest.net to test your speed what is your upload speed clocking in at?

I am using a file server - not a NAS per se - connected directly to my pc with 10Gbit networking.  Only one user, etc.

If you disconnect the 'file server' does the speed change?

Just a thought, from an old CNE - network guy: are you behind a CISCO router or other sophisticated firewall/router in a networked environment? Is this a corporate environment where the IT people might have tight security in place? You mentioned 10gigabit networking which made me wonder whether that was in play.

another question: you wrote "connected directly to my pc with 10Gbit networking. "

To be connected DIRECTLY to your PC would mean that you have a cross-over patch cord connecting the "server" physically to your PC. Usually that is not the way this should be done. Usually, if it really is a server, it attaches through a router which also has your internet access modem either built in or has a separate modem also attached to the router .Also do I understand that there is one server and one workstation and both are in your premises?
What is your actual configuration?
Rikk Flohr: Sorry for jumping in like this! I spent forty years in the network field and somehow just cannot retire gracefully!

Have not seen additional comment: I am curious whether this has been resolved... Dave
