Yesterday, my iTunes-Drobo FS-iPad Remote-setup started to work flawlessly for the first time. After I had transfered my 3TB music library to the FS some weeks ago I got frequent freezes of my iTunes. I thought the problem was within iTunes and its (too) large library, but perhaps it was just the Drobo that needed a lot of time to “digest” all those small ALAC- and mp3-files? Now I have played music for hours and hours and no freezes, no glitches, just perfect functionality!
Perhaps it was a mistake to shut the drobo down 1-2 times a week, as I have done? It seemed as if the Drobo needed a lot of time to “put things in order” every time I powered it up again.
Any thoughts on this? Should I just keep the Drobo on all the time? Even when I know I won’t be using it for 3-4 days? (I only use the Drobo for playing music wirelessly throughout the house — not for programmed backups or anything else.)
