hi musio, am sorry to hear that.
do you have any way to check the temperature of the room/area where the drobo is?
am not sure about you, but my gen1 fan really kicked in the last few days but thats because we have record highs in the uk. (it may well be that theres something related to the update, but im just wondering if it might be temperature related in some way?)[hr]
edit: also when you have that problem - what happens if you shutdown and try usb (just to see… if its related to temperature, then id imagine it behaving in a similar way, regardless of connection method, so it might be a good test to try when you have a moment)
Thanks for the thought. You’re right, it’s been a scorcher for us Saying that, Drobo is lucky enough to be in a cool room.
The problem is related to the update as I updated soon as it came out before it got this hot. Kicking myself for updating.
Just curious since I’m thinking about updating my 5D firmware; did the problem turn out to be a fan malfunction on your Drobo or do you still think the update to firmware 3.2.1 caused your Drobo to die?
My 5D has been down since March from the last firmware update. I’m a bit lucky since I’m still under warranty, however they can not fix the issue. I have done everything from run data rescue 4 to data warrior 5 and nothing. Their firmware is killing peoples drives causing the metadata to get scrambled. Drobo is not taking this serious. They are only concerned with selling products…
