The Drobo (Gen 2) is a 16 TB virtual NTFS Partition
I have 4.51TB total, with 2.98 TB used with 1.52 TB Free
It was having trouble mounting on Linux (takes about 5-10 minutes), so I attached it to a Windows machine to do some checking around
I then updated the firmware (1.4.2[1.254.50341]) and it asked me to run a chkdsk.
So I started it.
It is usually attached to a Linux machine, so there were some invalid file names that were deleted and I lost. No big deal as these files are replaceable. I backed up the important Pictures / Work documents.
I had to stop chkdsk (it theoretically would have reocvered these files during hte process, but I needed the work files more then I needed these deleted files)
Then Rebuild happened - took about 80 hours to complete. Now that this is done I am starting chkdsk again
Once that happened, It got all the way to “Usn Journal verification completed.” very quickly, seemed to pick up where the canceled run left off.
Looking online, it seems like it should be complete at this stage now (see below for output), but it seems “hung”. There does not seem to be any more steps that it should be taking looking at sample outputs.
The drives are moving (I can feel the vibrations and hear the movement). ChkDsk has been running for about 3hours now. I don’t mind waiting just wondering if anyone has some insights as to how long I might be waiting for.
