1. Just a SWAG here, but that level of NAS suggests minimal processing power. Since it is essentially a software RAID, the more writing across disks, the more overhead. Many of these boxes run a slimmed verion of TrueNAS or embedded Linux.
I run a TrueNAS NAS box on a 10 year old Precision 5810 with 2 5TB NAS drives, 5400 RPM. Uses the ZFS file system in a mirrored RAID (software not hardware). I backup via ethernet. Here is a small sample, using Robocopy:
            Total    Copied   Skipped  Mismatch    FAILED    Extras
 Dirs :       515       514         1         0         0         0

Not great but OK (~69MB). Network supports about 125MB.

I agree with the idea of putting a single drive in your NAS for testing.

2. Veeam will back up running VM's. Community version is free for something like 10 VM's. Not full featured, but with a PS script, you can automate.

It’s weird being the same age as old people. Live every day like it is your last; one day, it will be.
