Hello All and thanks in advance.
I’ve had a Drobo-S for 3 years and it’s been great.
I’ve suddenly got VERY poor write speeds (under 1mb/s) while the read speed remains excellent (80mb/s). It is connected via USB3. I have also tried eSata.
It is almost maxed with four 4gb drives and one 3gb drive. While on and connected, all five hard drive lights are green with no reported issues. While in standby, the 3gb light turns red.
I have two other Drobos connected to the same computer (Drobo Mini and Drobo 3rd Gen). I added the 3rd Gen and also recall a firmware update around the time of the slowdown (one month ago).
I thought the slow down was due to low disk space. I expected a speed boost after clearing 5-terrabytes but it is just as bad. The Drobo-S only has 6TB of 13TB available.
I’d welcome any advice.
