I posted another thread yesterday, but had a different thought overnight, which might be worth something.
I have a DR04DD10 Drobo Beyond Raid 4-Bay USB 2.0/FireWire 800 SATA 6GB/S Storage Array attached to a Mac mini Server (Mid 2011) (Yosemite) connected by FireWire. It has been attached for several years, no problems.
One folder has disappeared from the Drobo. I don’t know what happened to it. I recently shut down the whole system, including the Drobo and stored the drives in a safe while I was away from the house for a while. When I got back I put all the drives into the Drobo exactly where they were before, and then turned the whole system on. Everything else seems to be in order, except for that one folder.
So, my thought is: In May I replaced a drive, that had become too small, at Drobo’s request (it was signaling that it should be replaced). I still have that older drive, and if I understand Drobo technology properly, I think it likely has a copy of that folder on it. Is there a way to see the content of that drive?
I’d be afraid to plug it into the Drobo, lest it get overwritten, but I put it into a separate enclosure, and it wouldn’t mount.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
