Deleting Files takes a LONG TIME - Normal?

Hi, I’ve only had a Drobo-FS for a month or so. I’m having lots of trouble with disconnects, which I’m going through support for. But I noticed something about deleting files that I found really strange…

I went to delete around 200 gigs of files and it took almost 1/2 hour!!! It was 1378 files in 9 folders. Has anyone else noticed times like this for deleting files? Is this normal?

For the record I’ve got 3x 2TB Western Digital and 1x 2TB Seagate installed.

Thanks,
Mark

Deleting can be a real pain. Im seeing this as well.

i keep on getting errors that file is in use or i dont have permissions when trying to delete

Yup, seeing this as well. These issues can’t be unknown to DRI, but they keep shipping products like this anyway.

I dont know if my permissions problems are from switching from windows to osx
