We're trying to backup our 1TB NAS to Dropbox

We're trying to backup our 1TB NAS to Dropbox

 Our company NAS QNAP system needs a backup solution. It looks like DropBox Business might be a solution. There is a 1TB folder which I have run tests on to do the backup but it is extreeeeeeemmmmmely SLOW. I broke the folders down to be a smaller bacup but the same issue. Questions: Why is it slow? Is this not the right solutions?

Hey @FBCMike, thanks for reaching out to us. 

I'd be more than happy to help look into this with you, I'll jjst need a bit more info, such as:

  • How are you uploading the items to the Dropbox account? Via the website or the desktop app?
  • If you're using the desktop app, do you have the Dropbox folder located in your NAS?

Any additional details would be very helpful. Cheers!

I am using Dropbox web version. The job is created in NAS myQNAPCloud using the Cloud Drive Sync. The setup and connection to Dropbox does work but it is extremely slow. There is 1 TB to backup but I started off with one folder. After 24 hours it still had not backed up even half the data.

It looks from the forums this is a solution others are using. Just very much need to address this issue.

Thank you for any assistance.

Thanks for getting back to me, @FBCMike

The speed could be affected by a number of factors, including the third party app you're using to upload the files, and the network itself.

Out of curiosity, how large is the folder and how many files/item does it have in it?
