Please pardon me if I’m missing something basic here.
I’ve just installed a Drobo and Droboshare on my Vista machine.
I could see and access the drive through both the Drobo Dashboard and Windows Explorer.
As I didn’t want to leave the Drobo without a password with just the router firewall to keep it safe, I enabled password protection through the Dashboard software.
The dashboard software still sees the drive, of course, but when I try to access it with Windows Explorer, I’m not asked for a username and password, I’m just told the username and password are wrong and cannot access the device.
Again, please pardon me if this is an often-asked question. I searched the knowledgebase at the Drobo website and used the search through the forum and didn’t find anything helpful.
