Trying to run a backup of a rather large catalog (approx 80GB with 35000+ photos) to my NAS (QNAP 459 Pro) and I have noticed that the performance is painfully slow if the NAS is mounted as a Network Drive (takes hours if it completes at all). But I found a solution.

Possible fix:
I have experimented and mounted the same NAS using iSCSI and the backup completes in less than 20 minutes. I then manually copy the information from the iSCSI drive to the Network Drive (so other users can access it).

Problem has been worked around, but the main question is why the PSE backup is so slow to a Network Drive.
