Can't copy files to Drobo
Have Mac 10.7.5, when I try to copy a file to my Drobo it gives me the circle with diagonal line and won't allow it. Never happened before. I can however copy files from my Drobo to my desktop. Any ideas what's happening? There is ample space available.

RE: Can't copy files to Drobo
hi eric,
if you get a moment could you look at dashboard just to verify that dashboard is showing enough free space (from dashboard rather than finder?)

also how many blue led lights are lit up on the main unit?

you might have enough space in the end, but maybe a reboot of the computer and drobo could help?
another idea could be to try creating a new small file (like a wordpad document) and to try saving that with a basic name, onto the drobo (such as wordpadtest) to see if it saves.

then if it does, maybe the file you are trying to copy has some special characters in it?

(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)
