I have been using my Drobo S for a year and half. Each week I execute a backup image pgm to backup my system drive to the Drobo S. This weekend, I encountered my first “Windows - Delayed Write Failed” Dialog Msgbox on my Windows XP Pro - Desktop PC whcih resulted in the incomplete backup, by backup pgm. Both the Windows Daolig Box that appeared and the Event Log (event id: 50) indicated that a Delayed Write Failed during trying to save the file to the disk.
Does anyon know what could have caused the Delayed Write Failed to occur ? Has this happened to anyone with their Drobo S ?
P.S. I have been executing the same version of my backup imaging pgm, on a Windows XP Pro - SP3, desktop pc for the past year. The only thing different from when I executed the Backup to the Drobo S, a week ago, was the usual applying of MSUpdates, last week.
… The really strange thing, is that 30 minutes after getting the Delayed Write Failed, I ran my Backup Pgm again and it worked perfectly - no error message this time. As matter of a fact, I ran the Backup Pgm 4 more times in a row and still no error.
… Also, after getting the error (that one time), I had checked the Drobo Lights and they were all green. DashBoard indicated “Drobo Healthy” and “Data Protected”.
So, I have no idea why the error message occurred only that one time.
1. Any ideas why this happened and how to prevent it from happening in the future again ???
2. Has this happened to you ?
