this is getting really aggravating. I have four 1 tb drives in it and it was until recently hung off my airport extreme. The mac only recognized it as being a 2 tb drive (how I initially set it up) so I erased it and have reconnected it directly to my iMac. Now it is never recognizable when I start up the mac, despite having erased it using disk utility.
Drobodashboard doesn’t see it either and keeps reporting “looking for connection”.
I am getting pretty sick and tired of this. I already had to dump a bunch of my data to try and reformat and now I can’t get it to reconnect and format. I have been able to get it to mount a couple of times and it still shows up as a 2 tb drive. The whole exercise was to change this!
Now, it is just beachballing disk utility whenever I try and launch the app. This sucks.[hr]
I have erased my drobo AGAIN manually and reconnected it to my iMac. When the iMac recognizes it I choose initialize and am taken to the disk utility. I go the erase tab and keep the Mac OS extended format and click erase. I then get the barber shop scroll on the process bar for the next hour or so.
What is going on?
Dashboard is still unable to recognize the Drobo.
