First time poster, but hopefully this is in the correct forum …
The power supply to my DroboShare is turned off each night. As such, following the recommendations to avoid data loss, I have to remember to put the DroboShare into standby before shutting down my main PC each day.
Don’t know how likely it is that data loss might occur in practice if power is cut when the Drobo isn’t in standby mode, but I must admit I was a little disappointed with this aspect - my thinking being that surely if these things are intended to help protect your data they should be better able to cope with unanticipated power outages?
Anyway … my question is, would it be possible to write a script or command line utility that could be included in the PC shut down routines that would automatically put the Drobo/Droboshare in standby so that I don’t have to remember to do this manually each day?
Any help / advice would be much appreciated.
