Something happened when I was out of town to one of my DroboPros (have 2 FWIW). It had 8x 2TB drives. It wasn’t connecting via iSCSI, so I plugged it in via USB. It went through some type of boot loop and never connected to the dashboard. I removed all the drives, booted it up, and had a an empty drobopro. I added the drives one by one, and it would reboot and never connect to the dashboard.
I read about RO mode “alt+ctrl+shift+R”, and tried that. I had better results as 6 of my 8 drives went green (#1,and #3-#7, thankful to see some green lights!) My drobo connected to the dashboard, and I had a drive in “my computer”, but I can’t open it.
At this point I just want my data off as it’s full of family pictures and tax stuff, etc. I’ve always had double disk redundancy, so the data should be there I assume.
I popped in a new 3TB drive into #2, and it started rebuilding, flashing green\yellow. This has been going on for about a week. I unplugged it from USB to try and speed up the process, but it’s still going. I’ve never gotten an estimated time to be done rebuilding.
…so I’m curious if it even CAN rebuild in “RO” mode.
I popped in a new 2TB into #8, and it’s also joined the green\yellow blinking, but I’m not sure if that’s going to help.
Just want my data. Thanks for any help\advice.
