I have connection via ISCSI (cable from dedicated NIC to Drobo) – I have a second NIC for the local network.
Under the recommendation of Data Robotics Technical Support – I am in the process of updating the firmware and Drobo Dashboard.
My biggest question is HOW DO I recover my wife’s images – On a normal harddrive I can run a low level scan and recover data. Once I event went as far as replacing a harddrive driver board – but I have been lucky in as far as I am able to recover most of my data.
In the case of Drobo – I cannot do a low level scan on the drives as it is not a true NTFS data store. How do I recover the data that vanished from my drive?
I have located my lost files - It tured out that someone moved the directory (I think it was a click and drag. I found the files when I loaded the NTFS5 file allocation table up in Stella Phoenix and searched for the file. The good thing is my wife has faith in my Drobo again.
I have one other issue - my windows chkdsk is failing to complete - The ISCSI connection appears to timeout when running
Tonight (it is early in the morning downunder) I will do my weekly backup of my important files and then will look at changing my ISCSI settings to a longer timeout. I think the current timeout is 5 minutes.
