Improve file transfer speed between Macs and Synology

To improve the file transfer speed between macOS and Synology, you should do the following:

  • On Synology, go to Control Panel/File Services/SMB and under Advanced Settings upgrade the minimum SMB version from 1 to 2. This might prevent old devices from connecting, but can improve the speed of modern devices.
  • On macOS, disable packet signing.
