Data transfer speeds can be affected by a variety of factors, which may result in slower than expected transfers.
- Download and install the latest version of Workplace Desktop.
- The maximum bandwidth can be configured from within the Workplace Desktop Preferences. This is done in the Network tab.
- If you have a large amount of small files the speed can be slower. This is due to the fact that the metadata has to be transferred, this is expected behaviour.
- Run a speed test using this link http://speedtest-au.awp.autotask.net
- Try a different network connection to see if the speed changes
