I am getting regular Unexpected Disconnect with my Drobo 5D3 with mSATA connected via USB C cable to 2018 Mac Mini running MacOS 10.14.2.
I’ve contacted Drobo support and they recommend turning off Sleep settings (which I don’t want to do).
The external drive should reliably connect/reconnect with power saving settings enabled.
When the Drobo is disconnected - all LEDs look good … and after a reboot of the Mac Mini, the Drobo does not reconnect - I need to power cycle the Drobo. This behavior seems like a SW bug on the 5D3 (speculation).
Anyone else with experience in this matter or have advice on this topic?
