I hope somebody can help me.
I just got a new Archer C7 and hoped it will increase the throughput for samba via LAN.
I am testing using my Laptop on Win10 as the client and my desktop also on Win10 as the server.
I mounted the desktop's drive as network drive on my laptop and run multiple tests with crystaldiskmark (using different sizes 4GiB, 16GiB). The sequential read/write is in the range of 70-80MiB/s, which is not the best in the world, but it would be ok for me.
The problem is that I don't get even close to this rates when copying using Total Commander, Explorer or TeraCopy. It's only ~20 MiB/s for read and ~35 MiB/s for write.
I tried many tweaks recommended for the NICs and samba settings without any noticable impact.
Why is crystaldiskmark transfering the date at much higher speed than what I get from other software?
