I have a Western Digital Network Drive. I have Moneydance backup to a share on this network drive. However, it is so terribly slow. Is this a known issue or is there something I can do to speed it up?

    Network backups are slow. Backup to a local drive and use a backup program to periodically transfer your backups to a network. This is an issue they way that MD keeps transactions for syncing and may have a few thousand transaction files internally.
