New drobo S with 5 drives
I’ve opened a support request but it seems as though my newly formatted drobo S will say a drive is missing when I haven’t done anything! Very worrying. I’ve re-ordered the drives and it still does this.
Now i can’t even access the drive and it says ‘too many drive drives have been removed. Please re-insert the removed hard drives’
It’s all brand new!
I have an old v2 daisy chained to my droboS which is working fine. I’m finding this S very distressing. Has anyone come across this?
UPDATE: i’ve been replacing hard drives drobo says ‘are not there’ in dashboard and then another disappears! This is very unreliable.
Firmware Version: 2.0.1
Dashboard Version: 1.6.8
My Platform: Mac OS 10.6.3
File System: HFS+
UPDATE: after re-inserting lots of drives, i put the over on. I TOUCHED the drobo by putting the front cover on and the unit turned off and restarted itself! this is crazy just touching the device would cause it to turn off! I put a drive in and it restarted itself too. What’s going on!? It’s very temperamental. One sec all the drives are good, then it says replace, then it green lights it and it’s ok then i touch the drobo and it goes crazy and says ANOTHER drive is the issue…i’m getting mixed signals. I have two other drobos which have been fine. Maybe the hardrives aren’t seated correctly? No, i’ve pushed them in well.
Back to square one - too many hard drives removed and can’t access the drobo
I can start filming this and put it on YT if it helps?
