I'll get straight to the point. A while ago when I did a Disk Speed Test, I was getting 260-270 MB/s. After recently realising that my DaVinci performance dropped slightly, I decided to do another Disk Speed Test of which I then found out disk performance dropped to 150-160 MB/s.
I then decided to delete some unnecessary files from my RAID to increase available space, thinking performance could improve as a result. However, I was still getting 150-160MB/s.. :(
I checked my RAID Utility and it still has a green light and says 'Good'. The last time the Battery conditioned itself was about two and a half months ago.
What else can I do to get back to 260-270 MB/s again?
Thanks a bunch.

Sorry to keep bugging, but would iDefrag actually get me back approx. 100mbs of speed? sounds like I'd be dreaming... haha.
Also whats really confusing me, is why my two volumes set at RAID5 coming from the exact same hardware is now functioning different speeds.. technically they should be running at identical speeds like before. Where did I go wrong and what am I missing??
