I didn’t in fact - i’m one of those “sorta supported” linux folks. Last time i had an issue it was the community forums that solved my problem - back on the old forums…[/quote]
I would argue that the type of behavior you’re experiencing is probably independent of host computer platform but regardless…
At this point I’d see if DRI will swap/exchange units in the hopes that the drive pack itself is mostly OK and the Drobo itself has just lost its mind.
If you have some spare drives, you could eject the entire disk pack, mount the other drives and do some diagnostics. If the new drives do stupid things, then the fault is in the Drobo’s “brain” and any further attempts to “fix” the errors will likely cause more.
It’s like if you’re drawing a bunch of circles, then go to bed and when you wake up and look at your drawing, everything’s oval.
Without looking at something that you know for certain is a circle, you can’t tell whether your vision is just messed up (in which case “fixing” the ovals to look circular will actually break them), or if you were just really tired an actually drew a bunch of ovals instead of circles.
Hope you can recover your data.
