Hi

Sorry i didnt know where to post this :(

My connection (all wired)
PC > router < NAS

My problem:
Every time i turnon the computer i get a message saying "could not reconnect to network drive". I have done a lot a research but cant find a solution. The nas is a synonlogy 212j. If i double click on the drive, it goes straight into the nas. I have tried setting IP to static, that didnt help. I have also tried changing settings in settings.msc as well as a few other things. Nothing seems to be working. What should i do?

Help!!

Sorry if i posted in the wrong section.

I get this message from  time to time but the stuff on the NAS drive is still accessible once the conputer has boited up. I think that perhaps the NAS hasn't responded in a certain time frame hence the message.

From what you posted it seems you can still see the drive and access it, it so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I get the same issue with my win 7 machine accessing an external drive on another laptop over the network.
The moment I open it in windows explorer it's all good though.

ok, i guess i will just keep using it like this..

So i have another thing to worry about now :(

I own a Synology 212J nas. Just set it up with JBOD 2x 3tb HDDs. Transferring movies from pc to the nas over a cat5e ethernet cable as i have said in the OP.

The CPU is being used fully. Its nearing 100% and stays around 95%. I am getting worried. The process that is using about 80% of the cpu is smbd.

I am new to NAS and networking so i dont really know what this means. When i am not transferring, it stays pretty high too.

Devices connected to NAS:
- PC (wired)
- Laptop (wireless)
- Smartphone (wireless - astro file manager)

What should i do? What is wrong? :(

Don't worry about the network drive I get that as well when you double click it, it should work.

Is the drive at 100% when transferring files or when its idle?

You can look at the process from Task Manager and see whats eating the CPU. Silly question but you do have a anti-virus software?

Hi

Thanks for your reply. I m not running any anti virus software.

I am talking about the nas cpu being at 100% while transferring and its at about 50% at idle.

"Smbd" is the process that is using up 80% of the cpu..

Please help :(

this is during a file transfer:




This much cpu usage just for a filetransfer just doesnt seem normal to me :(

What do you think is wrong?

I wouldn't worry about CPU utilisation on a NAS.

smbd is the smb daemon,  given you are connected via a windows boz and are writing files to it, I would expect it to take a bit of a pounding :)
