Hi @stubfeed,

Does the RSYNC stops/hangs? It’s possible there are a lot of files in the folders you are trying to rsync over which can take some time to load.

Basically, how RSYNC works is, it’s creates a list of the directory and its contents you want to move and starts sending it over to the new directory you’ve selected. Now, if there are a million small files in the directory, it can take a lot of time for RSYNC to actually build the list and start moving the files around. These directories are usually - tmp, picture directories, session directories and so on.
