Drobo 5D stuck in reboot loop
Yesterday I turned on my drobo to find it stuck in a reboot loop. It loads for about 10 seconds then reboots. I'm worried the about loosing the data on it (20tb). Does anyone have any suggestions? I've tried to post a support ticket but it wont let me and says to email. I've emailed and had no response as of yet.

For an idea of the problem, here's a youtube video I found with the same issue:

RE: Drobo 5D stuck in reboot loop
hi anthony, would you be able to try putting it into read only mode, to see if things stabalise a bit, for example as is mentioned here?
(while not a full fix, it has been able to help some users at least access their data again to copy somewhere)

edit: in case support has got back to you since then, then please do follow any of their steps rather than mine... you can mention this thread, but it is just so that there are no conflicting suggestions that might get mixed up etc.

(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)
