Well I just saw the news about Drobo – that’s sad. Hope something good comes up.
My question is this – I have an older Gen 2 Drobo Im trying to migrate off of to a newer drobo.
BUT, it will mount on my Mac, and then unmounts after some time. Rather, becomes inaccessible, still shows up on the desktop - but cant access it and it disappears from the Drobo Dashboard.
Something else you can try, if your primary goal is migrating data. Put your Drobo into Read Only (RO) mode. This should allow the device to be more stable may allow you to copy stuff off more reliably and with less (if any) disconnects.
I’m pretty sure it’s the same process to turn off RO mode. You CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-R and it will restart out of RO mode. I haven’t used RO mode in a long time, so maybe someone else with experience can tell you.
