Hey everyone. OS X (Mac OS Sierra), Drobo 5 S, 5 HDD installed (One 500GB Three 2TB, and One 3TB drive). All hard drives are within two years old with the 3TB drive approximately 8 months old.
Here’s my situation:
Drobo was struggling to stay mounted. It would randomly unmount, but sometimes would mount again if I restarted the Drobo. Recently though it wasn’t even doing that.
I run Checkmate on my iMac and it was constantly showing there was a drive directory issue with the Drobo I thought the pattern was demonstrating that if my iMac went to sleep then the issue would show up so I stopped allowing the iMac to sleep or hibernate.
I’ve run Diskwarrior a number of time to rebuild the Directory. Things usually went fine and I was able to carry on with out blinking an eye. I recently did a rebuild but now the data on the Drobo is gone and in fact the Drobo Dashboard shows 16TB under “Volumes” but under “Capacity” it shows 4.41 TB used and 1.44TB free space available. Obviously numbers aren’t matching or adding up.
So if anyone has any insight into what happened to my data and what is going on with the Drobo Dashboard information I would appreciate it.
Finally if anyone has any thought on how I might possibly be able to retrieve my data that would really really be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
