Since I installed S2, my NAS is spinning 24/7

Ever since I installed and upgraded my system to S2, my NAS has been spinning non-stop, taking all ressources with it.


When I’m able to see what’s connected, I see dozens of SMB connections with the user I setup for my Sonos system.

I am unable to pinpoint what is going on, and the S2 app doesn’t tell me either.

Only after rebooting the NAS (which takes a long time, since it’s really busy), then removing my Shared drive config in Sonos does the heavy spinning stops.


When I configure the shared drive again, it takes a while, then the spinning restarts.


My NAS is a Synology DS218i

My Sonos NAS doesn’t show any connections unless I’m indexing or playing from it.

I’d check your indexing status, under settings, to see if that might be the case.

Submitting a diagnostic and passing Sonos the number might help as they can see your hidden internal data.
