LinkStation backup to USB taking a long time to complete
LinkStation backup to USB taking a long time to complete due to long file names.
The LinkStation's USB drive has a file path limit of 120 characters.
If the file is many directories deep, this limit can be reached quite quickly. This is a limit with EXT3 so it cannot be fixed in a firmware update.
Users will need to implement shorter filenames or a shallower directory structure. This will appear on LinkStations if the USB drive is formatted in EXT3 or possibly FAT32.
