Sharespace 2GB Slows down after about 1 week


I have been using a Sparespace 2GB which is set with RAID1 (mirrored) so it has a total size of 1GB. I have found that the drive works at a reasonable speed for about a week (timescale can vary a bit) but then access slows down to a crawl. If I restart the Sharespace then it speeds up again and runs OK for about a week again before slowing down.

I have searched the forums but not found anything so thought I would see if anyone else had seen this and found a solution (apart from the popluar “but a NAS not made by WD”).

What  transfer speed are you seeing?

The RAID will not have much impact unless there’s a problem with the RAID controller
