RE: Drobo S help help help
hi nrmone, can i check if the drobo is still doing a rebuild with any flashing lights (such as green and yellow?)
if so, the drobo can in some rarer cases, lose access from the computer, or from dashboard until it finished, which might take about 1 day per 1TB of data that you have.

if all lights are green (and not flashing), and if you were taking out your existing diskpack of drives, and using the 5 other drives in the drobo (as a separate diskpack, which worked), then you might be able to try putting the drobo into read only mode with the original diskpack, to see if you can access the data that way, for example as mentioned below:

(please note that diskpacks should only be removed or inserted in their entirety, and only when power is all OFF and cables unplugged.)
also, readonly mode is mainly just to see if data can be read again, and not for actual data changes or drive swaps)

if you do get a chance to try readonly mode, how do things go now?

(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)
