I’ve got a V2 Drobo, and a new Windows 7 computer with one of Data Robotics recommended FW 800 cards (the Belkin). I’m using the latest Unibrain drivers.
After working through the dashboard issues (the new 1.6.1 now works with Win 7) I’m still only getting write speeds in the sub-20 Mbps range, which is half of what the folks at Drobo said was a reasonable expectation. The same thing has happened on two different Drobos. Chkdsk is clean, and the diagnostic file I sent in showed no problems.
Is anyone getting a 40-45 Mbps read with Windows 7 on FW 800? Did it take anything special to get this to happen?
