I migrated 320GB of data to my new Drobo S last night. When I woke up the Drobo Dashboard pie chart didn’t reflect any of the new data and neither did the blue lights at the bottom of the unit. This was resolved upon a computer restart but it makes me feel a little uneasy when a new product isn’t working as expected. Is this normal?
but could you see the data - was it still on the drobo (via windows explorer / osx finder or whatever it is called?)
Yes, I could see the data in the Finder before the restart.
If you saw the data, that’s a good sign.
How did you initially format the Drobo when you first hooked it up?
I formatted it to 16tb. Hfs+
Okay, was just checking whether it was formatted/partitioned through Drobo Dashboard or via another program.
