I have updated my Drobo firmware to 1.4.2 and the dashboard to version 2.7. Problem is that my Drobo drive will disappear (unmount) off my computer. If I open it up in the dashboard - sometimes it will still see the drive (though it’s not mounted and my computer doesn’t "see it) … and sometimes the dashboard doesn’t “see it” either.
If I restart my computer, I don’t see it … though then starting dashboard will occasionally mount it – though after a couple of days it will unmount/disappear again.
This is obviously a no go since I use it as my media server.
I didn’t have this problem with earlier versions of the firmware & dashboard … though the dashboard kept bugging me to update.
What firmware version and dashboard should I be using for a Mac 2nd Gen Drobo. I saw some stuff on the Drobo site that seemed to suggest I should have the 1.4.2 firmware and the 2.6.4 version of the dashboard.
What’s your suggestion? If I downgrade, what’s the potential for corruption of my data (I have more data on my drobo than I have space elsewhere to back it up to).
Thanks for your assistance!
