Read through a bunch of the threads here, didn’t see anyone saying anything consistent with what I’m experiencing.
Got a Drobo v2 in april, it’s at about 50% capacity (4x1.5 TB WD Green drives) and lately I’ve been experiencing some real problems. I get horribly slow transfer rates between the drobo and the mac mini it’s connected to.
The biggest problem lately is that when I’m trying to watch a video off it (my itunes library is on it) it hangs periodically, and basically the only way to get it going again is to stop and start the video again.
I’m using FW800, but I swapped out to USB 2.0 and got the same speeds (around 5-6 MB/s transfer rate). Running Snow Leopard.
The most consistent suggestion was to run disk repair (I did that, no problems) so I’m wondering - what’s next? Is this thing broken? Or is the problem between the monitor and the back of the chair?
