Write-Back Cache - Disabled
Well you could enabled that for a start.
And check this this option.
In Device manager > disk drivers > your Array > Properties > Policies check “Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device” in win 7 improves performance a bit.
I tried the device manager change, but I didn't see any gain there. I can't select the option in the RAID, but I that might be due to the fact that it is rebuilding still. I didn't enable these options originally as I don't have them enabled on my RAID 1 setup on my other PC. After the rebuild, I will let you know if it has any affect.
Here are some screenshots showing the speed and the disk transfers.
Just because its so sad, I wanted to point it out. The 14.1 GB transfer of 7 files that I started over an hour ago is about half way there (7.68 GB remaining).
I can't select the option in the RAID, but I that might be due to the fact that it is rebuilding still.
You do know rebuilding is when a drive failed/dropped out right? And that you are rebuilding the array thats going to slow things up.
Yes its going to be slow.
I'm aware of the rebuild and I'm not expecting ground performance from it. But I'm also not expecting 2 MB/s speeds. This is the same behavior whether the status is normal or rebuilding.
