Why is it so much quicker to transfer data from Shield to Laptop than Laptop to Shield?

I have my Shield mounted as a network drive on my Ubuntu laptop. Transferring files from Shield to laptop is fast enough. Transferring the other way is significantly (I mean literally 10s of times) slower. E.g Copying my 2gb Kodi setup takes ~15 minutes and ~3 hours respectively. Does anyone know of any settings i can tweak to address this? The only explanation I can think of is that the Shield’s HDD sucks compared to my laptops SSD? submitted by /u/tronaldodumpo [link] [comments]
