I have been using a Drobo FS for several years now without problems. I just recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU to a M5a99FX and an AMD Black 8-core processessor.
I have been using a eSATA port on my old motherboard but it doesn’t seem to work on the new motherboard. The drive seems to be recognized but Windows 10 just hangs on the intro screen.
I switched to a USB connector and things seem to work acceptably. However, when I shut my comptuer off, the Drobo doesn’t go into standby mode; in other words the green lights stay on. Is this a problem or do I need to change a setting somewhere? When connected to the old eSTATA connection, the drobo when into standby mode when I shut the comptuer off.
BTW, I am using Windows 10. All drivers and software are updated.
