Single best upgrade I ever did to my Unraid NAS


Recommended Posts

A week ago I added the following extras to SMB configuration


case sensitive = true
default case = lower
preserve case = true
short preserve case = true

It gave me bigger speed up than installing more RAM, cache disk and replacing slowest drive, all combined. In fact, write speed for small files increased more than 10x times.  I keep big collections of < 1Mb files on it.

Because Windows does not allow files 'vodka' and 'VoDka' in one folder, but Linux does. So, every time a file is sent to NAS, Samba stupidly compares its name to *everything* to make sure there are no collisions. This disables it.
