Request for Drobo Admin for DroboShare

DataRobotics has removed all the “standard” drobo apps for DroboShare (and requests to support result in notices that the DroboShare is no longer unsupported).

However, I need to re-install the Drobo Admin utility on my DroboShare (after the disk was reformatted), and I can’t find a copy anywhere on the net. Could someone point me to a copy? (or even tar up an existing copy from their own DroboShare and upload it someplace?).


It’s unfortunate that the files are unavailable… I mean just because it’s not support doesn’t mean the stuff suddenly stops working, right?

Will check my archive.[hr]
Hi Scott,

Here’s an archive of what I had saved…

Yeah, I’m looking for the same things. My confidence in drobo is really decreasing to see this is how they handle a product going out of support, should my business expect the same treatment when the drobo FS we use there goes out of support?

Very cool, thanks bhiga!

BTW, I’ve been working on MiniDLNA so that it is more useful on the Drobo (such as online rescanning since DroboShare doesn’t support inotify), where would be a good place to post the files once I have something worth postings? :slight_smile:


You’re welcome, hope it helps.

Not sure where the best place to put stuff is. I think jhah was working on a site but my mind is fuzzy at the moment.

If you guys want I can create a section on the DroboPorts.com site to host this stuff.

Ahh, it was ricardo, sorry. :slight_smile:

So, should I go ahead and host the apps?

I have no problem with you doing so. :slight_smile:

Alright, so here’s the address: http://www.droboports.com/app-repository/droboshare

If you guys have any of the other apps, please let me know.

I’ve added a bunch of cool features to minidlna, and built a static binary for DroboShare, but my messages to ricardo apparently aren’t getting through (he appears to be banned from the board). Is there another location where I can upload the archive?


Yup, apparently the forum admins are no longer replying to requests to unban accounts, so I kinda got fed up with the forums.

You can always contact me by mail at ricardo@droboports.com

They’ve found the DRI collection of DroboShare apps on DRI’s website.

Ricardo, this collection would be invaluable for droboports I reckon.

Thanks for the heads up, I’ll look into it.
