    Recently updated the PC I'm running BlueIris on from an old AMD based processor and Win7 to a Intel i-7 system running windows 10.

    And have added an additional camera, so now a total of 6 cameras.

    What I am now experiencing is a lot of loss of cameras or No Signal errors, but mostly on 3 of the cameras, although BI is indicating over 1,000 No Signal errors on one camera, 500 on another, 130 on one other, and only 3 or 4 on the other cameras.

    Another thing I'm am experiencing since the upgrade is a massive amount of disk fragmentation on my 'NEW' drive, that I can't remember having on the older PC.

    Also copying from 'New' to 'Stored' which is on a network drive is rather slow.

    Anyone got some tips there on how to improve my situation here ? :)

    I'm guessing it's something to do with Win 10.

    Was your W10 install a fully clean install?

    Not that it helps you, but for me BI / W10 seems fine.

    Are these hardwired cams, WiFi cams?

    It does sound like a network problem. Anything operating over WiFi is likely to be a problem. Also if you have a lot of traffic passing through a consumer-grade router (even wired gigabit ports) it can be a cause of slowdown. Other possibilities are bad cables, interference on a wired network connection from nearby AC power wiring, or bad network interfaces.

    I suggest grabbing a tool such as MultiPing - Network Monitoring and Alerting or bp2008/pingtracer to monitor latency and packet loss between your BI pc and your router, NAS, and cameras. If you see steady low pings (0-2 ms is typical of most LANs) and no packet loss then this would strongly suggest the problem is not the network.

    Also, be sure to exempt the Blueiris.exe and folders from any antivirus software. Antivirus programs (including Windows Defender/Firewall) can really slow it down and/or disrupt the traffic as it scans the streams.
