Deore XT rear brake playing up...

Been running a Deore XT brakeset for about 18 months now. Recently the rear brake squeals and groans when I break and has very little power, to the point where it really doesn't help my stop under braking anymore, it just squeals. I have cleaned the rotor (which is quite old) and changed the pads (new set, different compound) which did help for about a week, but since then it has returned to its screamy ways. I thought it may be caliper alignment at first but I haven't adjusted it in the 18 months its been fitted. Any suggestions as to whats up with it?

Thanks! Jack
