Never Spin Down (spin off)
Hi!

I am using my drobo mini wih 4 2Tb discs and a mSata 250Gb, thunderbolt attached to a MacMini Server latest model, and the drobo mini NEVER spins down the discs (turn yellow).

Is there a way to discover why it is never spinning down? Is it mandatory do unmount the volume?

I erased all AFP and SMB shares, just to make sure it was not the file sharing services, but the discs keep spinning. Any ideas???

RE: Never Spin Down (spin off)
hi, i think they made newer version of mini firmware to always spin too

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
