Drobo Experience

What happened to my Drobo

My Drobo started resync of data for some reason (It does not tell why….).
I accessed data on it during resync operations and switched off the Drobo….
Resync times of more then 100 hrs (may be 500 hrs) where displayed in dashboard…. It never finished. Result: Drobo died. Dashboard could not find it any more after some time…

What was still possible

I could copy some of the data from the Drobo in very time consuming operations. It took several days. OK, I had to sleep during the night and to work during the day to earn money for another hard disk device…
I could not copy the data from the volume used for TimeMachine backup… So my backup history was lost. read more
