Slow Access to File Directory
When I access my NAS through my LAN on my Mac (selecting from Finder not DSM portal), there is a noticeable lag until files show in Finder. I currently have 3 x 3TB WD Reds in Synology’s SHR (RAID 5 equivalent). DSM is loaded on a USB 3.0 thumb drive connected to a USB 3.0 port. Gigabit connection. Any idea what’s going on?

Are you still having this issue?
Are you using a switch or are you plugged directly into a router?
Other than that try running a check on your disks. I have heard that some have SMART status showing “OK” but then they run a full scan and there is an issue which is making things run slow.
