I’m on a new MacBook Pro using the first edition of the Drobo. Have 75% of the space free. Can access Drobo and view files, just can’t write to the Drobo. Looked at Drobo permissions and I have “Read/Write” access.
When trying to add new images to my Drobo (from a card) using Lightroom Drobo is not allowing me to write the files. Even backinging up a Lightroom catalog won’t work. I can view past images that were imported, but for some reason I can’t import any now.
On the tech support article “Why is Drobo or DroboPro suddenly read-only and what do I do about it?” (http://bit.ly/1Rw4T4)
I did the first bullet (shut down) and that didn’t work.
Tried the second bullet
Use the Cocktail disk utility (available from Apple’s website).Tried but I was never able to start the program without it crashing.
Third bullet - Try using Repair Permissions from Disk Utility on the Mac to fix the permissions on the Drobo or DroboPro drive. When I went in to the Disk Utility “permissions” was grayed out. I ran a check and everything came back in good order.
So do I really need to do the below:
If the steps above do not solve the problem, then carefully read and consider applying the information contained at the following link; this may involve performing steps as a “Super User” (e.g. sudo -rm), within OS X’s Terminal application, so be very careful and deliberate.
If anyone has run into this I would really appreciate some advice. I’m stumped. Thanks.
