DS415+
Hi. New member here. Please advise if this is the wrong please for a question like this.

Question about moving file speed.

I have a DS415+ with DSM 6.2.4-25556, running a single volume, with SHR and ext4.
When moving files from one place to another with File Station, it happens near instantly, as if it just changes the file pointers.

Now I am setting up a new DS920+ with DSM 7, running a single volume, with SHR and btrfs.
When moving files from one place to another with File Station, it takes a long time and obviously writes the files in new physical sectors on my disks.

How can I configure my new DS920+ to behave faster and what setting in my DS415+ enables the fast file moving?

Thanks in advance.

You cant. That's how BTRFS catch. Moving will happen only inside the same root folder. If you move data from one root to another, it's actually doing copy/delete.

Hi Rusty.
Thanks. When you write root folder do you then mean moving from one shared folder to another?

ps: TOTALLY worth it to me! That catch? For all the benefits of BTRFS (AFP/SMB *instant* file copy, versioning, metadata mirroring - for instance) I would take the loss of the move=copy+delete any day. I know I'm not the OP, but the safety features it offers are off the charts! 😉

Are you certain of this? Within a same volume, I can "instantly" (or as quick as a screen refresh) move 5GB files between shared folders with just a flash of a file transfer on the toolbar... using File Station or via Windows File Explorer.

Perhaps, explained by:

That’s it. But by default it’s slow on btrfs. Fast clone was not there from the start
 
By Default, is off for everyone. I turned it on and behaves much better for my usage (I'm using it for transferring files between NAS folders but though PC File Manager (Total Commander)) and it's 5-10x faster now with that function ON. So depends on what for you need it or your intended usage

This means this tool can really speed up the operation by (5-10x ) ?
