Hi Guys … hope you can help.
I have a Gen 1 Drobo running firewire 800 and it is still going strong and powers down when my mac does. It is pretrty quick although it does take a nap now and then which is a little annoying.
I have recently bought a 5N … which I am disappointed with i have to say … very slow in comparison (connected direct by ethernet) and so far it has eaten 2 drives dead … although … take them out and format them they are OK to use as standalones?
However i digress … how should the 5N be powered down?
At present i do this via dashboard (but sometimes dashboard wont see the 5N)
Can I power down by the power switch … after my mac has closed down?
… or should i leave it on 24/7
Any help appreciated guys (and gals)
