I’m using a first gen Drobo on an iMac. I use it for Time Machine backups and media storage. I recently upgraded to Lion (OS X 10.7.3). I updated my Drobo Dashboard to 2.1.2, which doesn’t work (comes up, but basically shows very little info and doesn’t let you do anything).
On the plus side, Time Machine still seems to be working fine with the new setup. I’ve looked on the Drobo pages and know that the gen 1 product is no longer supported, so I’m not expecting any help from Drobo. So I’m thinking I have these options:
- Leave Dashboard alone since Time Machine is still working.
- Restore the old version I have of Drobo Dashboard from Time Machine
- Contacting Drobo about getting an older version, but again, since it’s unsupported, don’t expect this to work
I’m leaning towards option 1. I figure if I have problems down the road, I can restore to the older version, but don’t want to risk breaking Drobo working with Time Machine. I do have other backups via Super Duper.
Any opinions? Has anyone restored an older version of Drobo Dashboard via Time Machine, and if so, did it work?
