My DroboPro (with 5 * 1.5 TB WD Caviar Green Drives) takes almost 20 minutes from power on to being accessible under Windows 7.
I am trying to gather data on this - could you give me a rough idea of
a) The size of your array
b) the time it takes from a cold boot of your PC/Drobo for it to be fully readable
I would have thought 1-2 minutes was plenty…my drive lights all come up in this time, but the drive says ‘local disk’ in explorer for about 20 minutes until it finally switches to Drobo and becomes responsive.
