I use my Thecus 2100 as a file server but have an issue with the unit going into a sleep or delay mode. After some period of time the Thecus appears to go to sleep which can be woken up by network access. I use the Thecus to store my quickbooks files, email files, mapped drive, etc. This causes a lot of problems:
1) I will get constant write failed messages in thunderbird when the unit goes to sleep. I can only resolve this by accessing the thecus directly.
2) If I leave my quickbooks programs and files open and try to save after some amount of inactivity, the write will fail and quickbooks will shut down.... i could lose lots of vital data!
3) If I leave the thecus inactive for some time, the go to my computer/file explorer my workstation is lags while waiting for the thecus to respond. This can take 15 seconds and makes my computer very slow and laggy to respond to various disk access needs.
Is there a way to resolve this? This is a large enough problem that I will have to return the thecus and simply use a computer with a raid card as my file server.
