Alright well here is my case, for god knows what reasons sometimes things don’t work the way you want them to. For example regarding this current issue I am having, now sometimes if anything were to happen to the network connection on my pc, IE my cat accidentally disconnects the Ethernet cable, I lose the connection to the Drobo FS (obviously). But when I reconnect the Ethernet cable the Drobo Dashboard just doesn’t want to find the Drobo FS again.
The only way to fix this is by rebooting the PC, then the Drobo Dashboard finds it without any issue. Now whats really bugging me is why is it that I have to reboot my pc to get DD to find my FS anytime I lose the connection to my network? I tried closing it and running it again same thing. Waited for around 30 minutes, no connection, but as soon as I restart my computer, tada it connects without any issues. I mean its not really an issue since all I have to do is restart, but still whats the difference between closing and running the program again in comparison to restarting the PC? Is there a process thats still running in the background that might be stuck which gets terminated when I restart my PC? Any ideas guys?
Also if its any relevance, running windows 7 64 bit, my Drobo is connected to a d-link gigabit Ethernet switch which my PC is also connected to, and I have tried disabling and enabling the network connection, that didn’t help either.
