I’ve been using the DroboPro for a couple of weeks. So far, I’ve had disappointing performance as the main problem.
Today, I saw a “Delayed write failed” error message from Windows. A write operation has failed and I now have garbage in one of my files.
A few hours later, when DroboPro was idling, the Dashboard suddenly turned red and told me “Data at Risk”, without anyone even touching the device or the drives. Data protection was estimated to take some 30 minutes and is now completed.
I expected DroboPro to be “fast and extremely reliable”. I could have lived with “not so fast but extremely reliable”. I can’t live with “not so fast and mostly reliable”.
Next, I’ll be copying my data back to bare SATA drives and opening half a dozen support cases for all the weird things happening. And, let’s see if I can get my money back - I can’t use the device for its intended purpose.
