my drobo not working properly
When I first connected the old drobo 4D with my Imac, it seemed worked.
(My dashboard version is 2.6.4.)
But after few days, it never recognized it. and finally shows nothing but orange light on the power indicator.
Can anybody give me some kinda solution please?

RE: my drobo not working properly
hi do you know if this orange light is on the power supply psu brick, or the main drobo?
this troubleshooting guide may help regarding power and lights too:

what happens if you try powering all off, (drobo, computer etc)
and unplugging the computer connection cable from the drobo
and unplugging the power cable from drobo
and then waiting for 5 minutes, and then trying to plug just the power cable back in and power up the drobo
(does it seem to boot up and with green power light on both the psu and the drobo unit?)

if yes, it will probably run through the usual boot up sequence with blue led lights from 1 to 10, and then go into standby mode.

if it does now, then if you can try powering up the computer, and then dashboard,
and then to try connecting the drobo to the computer
what happens 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)
