Raid 5 slows when copying
by Merlin Eden on May 2, 2012 at 8:48:59 am
I've had a annoying problem that has been bugging me for the last year or so. I have a 7TB RAID 5 drive connected to 2 x2.66Ghz Quad Core Intel. Whenever I copy files over firewire, etc or someone on my network trys to copy to that harddrive the computer groans to a near stop in Final cut pro (I'll also post in that forum too). Is there a way to manage the resources or transfer speeds to network users or straight copying data vs reading data off a drive? Be amazing to sort this problem.
