I was moving 50+ GB of files across my home network to my drobo v1 and it locked up. I had to hold the power button on my pc just to restart. When I did that, the drobo wasn’t being seen (broken links to the drives). So I pulled the power cord from the drobo, and turned off the pc.
After a few minutes, I powered up the drobo. This is were it gets strange. It showed 70% full (thats normal for me) but windows xp Pro only shows 1 of the partitions. I have 2x1TB and 2x1.5TB that show as 2x2TB in winXP. But only one is shown. I mean to say that one is still accessable and the other (the one with the majority of my stuff) isn’t readable…in fact, its been renamed completely…and if I try to get to it through ‘My Computer’, my pc locks up again. Funny thing though, the blue lights on the front of my drobo show 3 for 30% (the one partition) at the beginning of windows loading and then 7 for 70% full. andNot that they are flickering, but for each bootup instead. once it changes from 3 lights to 7 lights it locks up basically and ALL four drives lights are solid green.
Anyone got any suggestions?
