Here’s the situation…
I have a drobopro with 4 2TB WD HDD’s (black)
I recently tried to add a new volume; a 1TB volume. I had already had a 16TB volume.
The volume creation had issues… But, ultimately, it seemed to work.
However, now whenever I connect to the drobo via. either USB or iSCSI, the Dashboard shows that I have two volumes, both named Drobo, and either have any used space.
So, being the patient sort of person I am :-/ I let it sit for a while and it finally gets around to mounting the 1TB volume. Then, after a few more moments, the dashboard just goes away; it tells me that it’s waiting for a connection. (This is via USB.)
The large volume never seems to mount. I tried connecting it to another computer, thinking that perhaps the computer itself is the issue. No such luck.
I’ve taken out the drives and did a pin-reset (without drives in the drobo) thinking that it might help. Nope.
At this point, I don’t know if I’m just not giving it enough time to mount? is there corruption? I simply have no idea of how to proceed. I can’t seem to get into the 16TB volume at all.
Oh yeah… Few other oddities. DDService.exe pegs my CPU when it’s trying to mount the large volume.
The large volume drive shows up as a “Drive” in “My Computer” – but, if you click on it, it doesn’t do anything (other than hang explorer.exe).
