Hope someone can help me out. I have had my Drobo for a couple days now. Just finished copying my files over to 2 1TB drives. I put the Drobo in standby after I finished. I then tried to start the Drobo up again and it hangs while booting up. Here’s what happens with the lights when it starts:
All four red drive lights come on, all 10 blue capacity lights come on, and the power light is solid red.
The lights will stay like this for about 15 seconds.
All lights go out and the power light will be solid green for about 5 seconds.
All the blue capacity lights come on and the power light is solid red.
Stays like this indefinitely (I have let it stay like this for hours).
All during this time, the fan is always running.
I have tried removing all drives and the same thing occurs. It just stops booting and hangs.
I have also tried to do a hard reset, but noting happens. Same sequence as above occurs.
Since it does not complete the boot, I cannot access the drive through the dashboard or disk utilities. I am running OS X Leopard 10.6.2.
I have logged a question with DRI (reference number 100116-000008).
Anybody have a similar problem or can suggest a resolution? I am hoping that the data on my drives are still ok . . .
i suspect you may just be ont he starting edge of a bathtub curve another reason not to trust all of your data to a brand new device before you have played with it - since playing also gives it a chance to fail
