I'm using qBittorrent to download to my external hdd, mounted as /mnt/extdrv. I'm connected to VPN via Wireguard. I'm experiencing download speeds of about 0,5Mb/s, download the same file via computer results in a download speed of about 15 Mb/s (so it's not a "network" issue). Transferring files to the external drive from Windows via Samba results in a transfer speed of about 50 Mb/s so I don't think that's the problem. Files are downloaded to folder Downloads and then moved to the Plex directory by Sonarr/Radarr. The external drive is a 4 TB exfat drive running through USB 3.0.
I've seen other posts mentioning this and that it might be a permissions issue, however I'm not really sure what to do. ls -la /mnt/extdrv/ outputs this, if it's any help:
Code: Select all
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1048576 Jan 1 1970 . drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 Apr 2 01:10 .. drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1048576 Apr 2 19:46 Downloads drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1048576 Apr 1 19:27 Plex drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1048576 Mar 31 23:42 'System Volume Information'
EDIT: Upon further investigation, might I be better off formatting the device as EXT4?
EDIT2: I've reformatted the drive to EXT4 and changed the permissons using 'sudo chmod -R 775 /mnt/extdrv' and 'sudo chown -R dietpi:dietpi /mnt/extdrv'. I also made sure that qbittorrent was part of the dietpi group. Download speeds seem to be much better now, so one of those things was probably the issue.
