    Files not being copied when transferring files from NAS

    I am running a qnap NAS in my home network. I can connect to the NAS no issues at all, I can copy small files across the network no issues. However I want to rebuild my NAS so am performing a backup across the network. I want to copy approx 2tb in a single copy. However when I do a select all, copy and paste, it's only copies about 40gb of the data. Can someone please explain why this is or if I am doing something wrong. I am running win8

    I have done this before running win7 and had no issues. Is this just a win8 problem. I am an IT consultant so this should be easy

    thanks in advance.

    I can't directly answer your question but recently had my Western Digital My Book world NAS die and I replaced it with a Buffalo 2 drive unit without drives using the still working 2 tb wd drive and have found WINscp helpfull but you'll need SSH enabled in your nas.
