Drobo dashboard says it’s healthy but it fails to mount after accepting Apple’s latest 10.11.3 update. HELP! I cannot access my files.
I’ve now attempted to mount the Drobo on 10.68, 10.95, 10.10.x, and 10.11.3. I’ve reseated the Firewire 800 cable in both slots in the Drobo, tried restarting 2 dozen times, even tried using USB. Nothing has gotten the Drobo to mount, and since it’s got 2x 3TB drives and 2x 4TB drives, I’m starting to freak out; I’ve been a Mac user since 1984 so my data stretches back for 3 decades. I have a 170gb backup of my Logic, ProTools, and Cubase files from last March but that means I’ve lost all my work since then, as well as family photos, and a 400gb iTunes library. Can I trust Alsoft Disk Warrior? How about Tech Tool Pro? (Tech Tool Pro also says it cannot fix the disk). I would gladly pay money for tech support if we can recover these files.
I am slowly but surely losing my faith in Drobo. Speaking of Last March, when I had a failed attempt to migrate to a new Drobo, as they have suggested, the new Drobo wouldn’t connect to my Mac reliably – and during that 2 week process of farting around, the backup of my sample files failed, and the existing drives did not migrate to the new system, so I ended up losing 13 YEARS of audio recordings.
