ix2 very slow after firmware update to 4.1.404.34716

Recently upgraded my ix2 to the latest firmware release, and now I cannot use it. I was using it for storing installers for programs I use for company laptops, etc. but now it takes 2-3 minutes to actually run anything, and every time the installers fail because of time outs. Prior to the upgrade, it functioned like any other device on the network and was very responsive. I have tried rebooting / resetting the device with no luck.

 

I do not have any media servers or other servers enabled on it, I use it strictly as a file share. Is there a way to go back to a previous version of the firmware? I could not find a link to an earlier version anywhere. Right now the device is pretty much useless.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

re: ix2 very slow after firmware update to 4.1.404.34716 - all good now

So, 2 days later and everything seems to be OK. Something must have been running in the background, although I did not see any indication that it was doing a drive check or anything like that. Access speeds are back to normal.

 

Sorry for the false alarm!
