Poor ballance, and R/W performance on my pool



I have windows server essentials 2016 installed on a HP MediaSmart Server EX490.  I have Drivepool installed on this machine, and local data transfers on and off of the pool are often very slow, with the transfer speed falling to either a few KBs a second or just zero.  Additionally, when I try to balance the pool, after an hour or so I make no progress.  I have two disks pooled to total about 10 TB.  How can I start troubleshooting this?  I'm on version  Thanks.

To make sure, the poor local transfer is from disk to disk, right? 

And is from a disk outside of the pool to the pool? 
And is this large files, or small files? 

Also, keep in mind, that the EX490 is super old hardware, and the max 4GB of memory may be a limiting factor, here. 

Also, does the performance issue happen outside of the pool, or only with the pool?
