Thank you so much for the help with sorting this out!
-I am on CIFS (using unraid server as my file server and it's much

-Delete files slowly is NOT turned on, and never has been
unraid has preliminary NFS support, so I might give that a try and see
what happens. In the meantime, any other ideas to try?
