Slow download speed when saving to network drive

Client side is Windows 10 running WinSCP 5.17.10. Server side is Debian 10. I've got a network drive mapped in Windows and noticed that when downloading to the network drive (Samba), speed tops out at 5 MB/s. However, if I download to SSD instead, I'm getting 50 MB/s.

As a quick sanity check I tried Windows file copy from the SSD to the network drive and it saturates the 1 Gbps link @ 107 MB/s.

I tried toggling "Optimize connection buffer size", and "Enable compression" but didn't see any improvement.

I tried the same test with FileZilla and got 50MB/s whether it's downloading to the SSD or to the network drive. However, I'd prefer to use WinSCP because of the nice scripting capabilities.

Is there any way I can improve the transfer speed when saving to a networked drive? Thanks!

Please post session log files both for the download to SSD and the network drive.

Re: Slow download speed when saving to network drive

Attached a session log of first downloading 1GB file to Desktop folder (SSD) at 30 MB/s and then downloading to Z:\ (network drive) at about 5 MB/s. Thanks for taking a look!
