User no longer can connect to drobo folder
I have a drobo 5N and I can no longer access one of the share folders though windows explorer. I am running windows 8.1. I was able to access the share last week. I recently copied about 400 Gb of data to the share using Richcopy. I was able to access and copy the data fine. Now I get and error when I try to access that share folder. If I set the permissions to 'Everyone' though the drobo app I can can access it fine but if i limit the permissions in the drobo via the drobo app the share become accessable. My only solution right now is to mount the drive via the app. I'd like to fix the permission issue not have to rely on using the app to access that share.

RE: User no longer can connect to drobo folder
hi electrocit, can i check if you have tried using dashboard to shut down the drobo, and to try rebooting it and the computer, after making each change? there were some other users who needed to make one change at a time, and to commit or apply the changes one at a time, (sometimes also shutting down and rebooting) and then it worked for them. if you get a chance to try it may help you too?

(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)
