this is about the fourth time that part way through transferring files, the drobo goes off line and I get a msg saying that " drobo cannot currently
protect your data against hard drive failures"
this happened before when I had the drobo connected by fw800.
I have over 500gig of stuff on it. I needed to tranfer another 200 gig and
poof, the unit goes south. it tried to reorg the data but kept looping back.
I ended up having to reset it and reformat it.
so I hooked it up to droboshare via usb
I transferred 536 gig to it and I was in the middle of adding the next 200 gig and it went offline. all four drive lamps are flashing green/orange. and occasionally the top drive goes red and winks out.
these are 2 teragig drives – 4 altogether – all brand new
what do I do now?
do I have to reset and reformat?
Im getting really tired of this
dashboard shows the used space as red instead of green
if I go to advanced – its shows the data protection in progress — it gets to 1 min to go then restarts – gets to 1 min to go then restarts
instructions say not to turn off drobo or pop any drives out
how long does this process take?
