5c Won't Mount

5c Won't Mount
I'm running Mac 10.12 with a Drobo 5c. Dashboard 3.0 finds it fine but it doesn't mount so I can see any files in Finder.

I've rebooted, waited 5 minutes, power and cable seem fine (since Dashboard finds it) but I'm out of ideas. The drobo lights are fine, it looks the exact same with all green lights and I'm only using 3 blue dots of storage (as per the lights).

Any one have any ideas?

RE: 5c Won't Mount
hi jayfinner, would you be able to try powering all down (first the computer, and then the drobo after it goes hopefully into standby mode).
and then to try waiting another 5minutes and trying again?

sorry if i misunderstood anything and if you tried that already, though i wasnt sure if it was just the computer you rebooted, and not the drobo as well. (there was a recent thread posted here where dashboard found the drobo again after rebooting the drobo).

(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)
