# dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=1024 count=50000
Run the following command to test Read speed
# dd if=testfile of=/dev/zero bs=1024 count=50000
The first test will write a file called ‘testfile’ to your zpool and then the second test will read back that same file. You can change the count in order to change how large a file to create.
In this guide I will explain how to redirect the the My Documents folder to the User share on a Windows Home Server. Also, I will set up Offline File Syncing so the computer can be disconnected from the network and still maintain access to the files.
