Got this weird problem and it’s not the drobo, but it’s making it unusable.
Had it plugged in for 4 months no problems, now following a reboot of server, the drobo USB drive disappeared but the drobo dashboard could see it. So turned it off unplugged USB, rebooted with it off then when back in windows powered it up and plugged in USB. It then came back as my z: drive as before and can read the data. However I can’t write to it. Windows 2008 says it’s write protected.
Yet if I plug the dronbo into my windows 7 laptop it works fine.
So something in windows 2008 seems to have made the drobo write protected within the operating system.
