unRaid and OSX slow directory listing

I have been using unRaid server for several months now, and it works the way I wanted it to be. However, there is one thing that was really annoying. Mapping a network drive on my OSX.

At first, I thought it was the unRaid server’s fault, but after several days of tinkering, it was my OSX that was slow. In Linux, the folder listing shows up very quickly, and the same with Windows, but not on OSX.

To make this post short, the resolution is by going to:

Finder > ViewShow view options then uncheck the Show icons preview

That pretty much fixed my slow directory/folder listing for me. Hope this simple fix would work with yours.


About networkshinobi

My name is Karlo, I work as a Network Engineer. A little about myself. I started as a PC gamer back when I was in high school. PC gaming became my addiction and pushed me to learn more about computers. Slowly got my some certifications and landed an IT Tier 1 Helpdesk job. This job opened the door for me to work to push further on my certifications and going deeper into the IT world. My goal was to get my Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching, but my journey for CCIE has changed due to I always ended up working on non-Cisco network appliances. Therefore, I have to pivot and decided to jump to the dark side and go with Juniper. Hopefully, I would get my JNCIE in the near future.
