Starting to get a little worried here. My Drobo have been flashing yellow and green lights at me for well over 24 hours now, I’m worried it’s gotten “stuck” somehow.
A bit more details: I was in the middle of moving some large folders around when the data protection mode kicked in and Windows explorer stopped responding, making the entire system unstable. I left it like that for several hours hoping it would start responding again, but no sign of life so I tried to log out, but again it failed to log out so after looking at the “Windows is logging off” screen for 2 hours I finally powered off the computer (Didn’t touch the Drobo, it’s been powered on the whole time).
After rebooting the computer my Drobo drive is not mounted in Windwos Explorer, I can NOT access any files on it, though I can see the amount of used and free space in the Drobo Dashboard, so hopefully it’s all still there.
Question is. Should it be taking this long? I have two 1 TB drives in it, using 785GB (It’s getting pretty full, I suspect that might be why it’s taking a while). Is there any way to get some kind of progress indicator? Is there a point at which you can safely try to reset it or something? I don’t want to take any risks, but I would like to get access to those files again soon…
