I got my Drobo-FS for over 3 weeks now. It has 3 x 2TB disks and 2 x 320Gb disks. Total Capacity is 4.71Tb. 2.40TB are used.
It has 4 Shares and 3 users.
My local network is Gigabit. 2 Gigabit switches between my Mac Pro and the Drobo-FS. Green lights on the Gigabit switches to indicate gigabit (amber light if 10/100Mbits)
My Mac Pro system disk is a SSD Intel 160Gb.
When I copy from the Drobo-FS to My Desktop. It takes 45 minutes for a 1.68Gb file to be copied.
Is that normal speed ? I guess not. My writing speed TO the drobo-FS is faster (same file took only 7 minutes to be copied to the Drobo-FS) than my reading speed FROM Drobo-FS ???
Am I missing something ? A special setting somewhere ? This is so far the slowest NAS I ever had.
