DroboFS Cat5 hardwired via building to Switch
(3) 2-TB HDD’s
New installation 01/2011
I called Tech Support about a week ago to inquire about the transfer speed of data from the existing CPU on my small LAN used as a P2P File Store to the Drobo as Primary Storage. It took far longer than it ‘should’ have, but then the speed was throttled by my NICs as well. Long story short: The Tech(s) had me do multiple things that (according to each of them about the other) were inappropriate for my DroboFS: [list=1] Hook it direct to the CPU’s NIC bypassing the LAN; and
 Power it down without disconnecting it from the LAN.
[/list]While the Techs were personable and patient, their help was… uh, not.
Now my once pristine Drobo has lightly mangled files and I’ll need to undo my work putting all data back on the original File Store CPU, reset the Drobo’s DiscPak thereby (sort-of) deleting all data, and start over. OK. I can deal with this. It’s a pain but it could be far worse.
The DroboFS has created a folder titles “lost+found”. I’ve never encountered this before (but I have no Unix experience). Is this:
 Something Drobos automatically do?
 Something from DRIs flavor of Samba?
 Something from the latest firmware upgrade?
 FM? (Fancy Magic)
[/list]Can anyone enlighten me about this?
