Is it possible to get Apple´s attention? Lets try with your help ;)
They say hope is the last thing a man should lose, and here I am hoping Apple fixes an issue that is affecting a lot of people by creating a petition.
Accessing network shares over AFP/SMB on the MacOS Operating systems work very bad.
Listing files on a NAS its terribly slow, no matter if its over Wifi or Ethernet. Specially if you have a large amount of files on the folder.
Windows has no issues accessing the same shares with Windows Explorer with blazing fast speeds (almost instant). An example can be seen on this video I shot some time ago. The problems persists today (August 2017).
