System slowdown with USB Storage pool
« on: August 07, 2018, 07:46:17 am »
I am running Flexraid RAID-F latest version with a USB storage enclosure. The enclosure holds 4 10tb drives and 4 6tb drives configured into a single storage pool on a Windows 10 Enterprise box. The storage pool starts and runs fine but after a few hours the system slows to a crawl. If I stop the storage pool then the system recovers and runs normally. But, when I restart the storage pool in a few hours the performance degrades again.

Any Ideas? .. Thanks in advance.

Its usually not recommended to run USB disks like this.
