i’ve had a drobo for about 6 months now… and i know they arent the fastest solution out there. i just got a new computer a 27in mac. i plugged in my drobo through the firewire 800 port and i’m trying to transfer 192 gigs of music, pictures and data from the drobo to the mac. its transferred 42 gigs in 10 hours… the little progress bar says its going to take 62 hours to transfer the rest of the data… that just doesnt seem right to me…
i’ve been using it for months as backup… it transfers at night… and usually fairly small amounts of data… its always been ridiculously slow… but i’ve never really needed anything off of it so it hasnt been a problem… but if this is the kind of transfer rates i can expect when i DO its really of no use to me.
any suggestions? is 42 gigs in 10 hours a normal transfer rate or speed to expect?
