I sincerely hope someone can help me, because Drobo support will not.
I have a Drobo S (Gen 1) that stopped turning on. It’s the 4th time it’s happened. Once the entire unit had to be replaced, and then the other two times I had to buy a new power supply. I thought the power supply was the culprit again because when you hit the power button, absolutely nothing happens (although there’s slight beeping noise from the supply).
At this point, I don’t care what it costs - I have a decade and a half of photos and video on my children from birth on this thing.
So two questions:
Does anyone know what’s wrong, and what I can do with this unit?
Could I buy a new Drobo 5-bay (5d?) and put the drives from the Drobo S in it, and be able to access my files?
Please help me.
