So far the drobopro has been very robust compared to the v1&2 till now.
I tried to switch the Volume management from automatic to manual and added a second volume and hit apply. The dashboard spun for quite a while and then all of a sudden everything turned red on the DroboPro and it said all my disks are bad. I removed all the drives and then reseated them. Now everything looks fine but the 2nd volume says unknown format and is simply named “Drobo” Should I delete and recreate the volume or simply format it in Disk Utility?
oh, one other thing for people at Drobo, the manual has some misinformation about manual volume managment. Copy/Paste from the manual:
This is incorrect since when I switched to Manual the software warned me that I can’t change back to automatic management unless I reformat the entire DroboPro.
