I am trying to make the best of a free computer, but I'm having some painfully slow situations and not sure if it's the hardware or something else.
Dual 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4
2 MB L3 cache per processor
1 GB DDR SDRAM
Running OS X 10.5.8
I set up a striped RAID set across all four internal ATA drives (links to specs):
3x 172.6GB IBM IC35L180AVV207-1
1x 115.0GB IBM IC35L120AVVA07-0
I tried to transfer 64gb of data from a USB today and it estimated the time to be 25hrs.... This is less than a megabyte per second so something has to be wrong. At this rate the computer is going to be practically unuseable. I tried the same thing with a different USB storage device and the same thing. Took ages.
