I am plugged into the Drobo from my Dell Precision laptop. I am copying data off of the Drobo and onto a new 2TB eSata connected disk. The Drobo is just performing reads. It contains 4 1TB Seagate Baracuda top of the line drives. My performance is about 5MB/s. I am looking at tests online and people are seeing 30MB/s on average. At the current rate, I will be done copying data in 4 or 5 days.
What am I doing wrong? How can I speed this up?
Just as a test, I copied a 1GB file from my internal HDD to the new eSata disk and it moved the data at 155MB/s.
I am a huge fan, but need help with this.
