Extremly slow when backing up to cloud

Post by Kriekos » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:43 pm


I am fairly new to Cobian and I am what you would call an idiot when it comes to these kind of IT stuff. So if you are willing to give it a try to help me, please explain like you are explaining it to your grandmother ;) .

I have made a few tasks to backup to a cloud location (Stack). The problem is that it (at least the first full backup) goes incredibly slow. I just tried a 2,14 GB folder and it took more than 2 hours. Another folder is 97 GB so you can imagine that it would take approx 97 hours or 4 days. You can see the problem. On the other hand, when I make a backup to for exemple the desktop the same 2,14 GB backup is done in less than 3 minutes. 3min vs. 120min. Can somebody help?

Thanks in advance for your patient reply.

Best regards,

Are you using FTP or SFTP? Are you uploading a lot of small files perhaps?
