I have a first gen Drobo with 1.3.6 on it hooked up by USB to a G5 iMac. I am currently experiencing dismal read performance while trying to rsync data from Drobo to another drive. I know it’s not the other drive because I have tested it by moving data around from the Mac’s internal HD.
I have also rebooted the Drobo and tried a different USB port with no luck. I even tried it hooked up to my MacBook Pro, again, same performance issues.
I updated to 1.3.6 a couple of months ago and it was performing much better than this perviously.
At the moment I am lucky to see 3MB/s and this is READ performance!
Can someone help?
