CrashPlan still OK on Drobo FS?
My Drobo FS has been sitting for a year with no drives and I'm thinking of putting it in use again running CrashPlan. Is that still an option on this legacy NAS? Is there a particularly good set of instructions for getting that up and running? Thank you!

RE: CrashPlan still OK on Drobo FS?
hi mprusse
there was another main another crashplan thread with several pages, and i think it was a case of the makers of crashplan were changing (or going to be ultimately making changes to) the way crashplan worked, so that it would no longer run on certain nas units as an app. (i may have misunderstood something but here is the link to that thread for you below)

(the later pages have more recent info too)
btw you could still try to use your drobo without crashplan, as it should be able to help provide some good redundancy even if not part of crashplan if you want?

(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)
