I have a question regarding restoring a MacBook Pro (late 2013, OSX 10.10.2) from a Drobo 5n.
I submitted the following question to tech support only to find out that I am out of my 90 days and that they cant help me. They recommended I ask here so I’m hoping someone has attempted the same thing I am trying to do.
Here is my originally submitted question:
I was attempting to restore my MacBook Pro from a Time Machine backup that is on my Drobo 5n. I was able to perform a backup this morning but not able to perform the restore.
I followed your guide at:
and I was not able to mount the Drobo so that I could see the time machine backups.
I have attached a text file of what I did in terminal so that you can review.
I sent them a text output file from what I was told to enter on terminal. Here is what the file contained:
-bash-3.2# cd /Volumes
-bash-3.2# mkdir TimeMachine2
-bash-3.2# cd TimeMachine2
-bash-3.2# mount -t afp afp://Admin:Password@10.0.1.10/AlexsMacBookBackups/Volumes/TimeMachine2
usage: mount [-dfruvw] [-o options] [-t external_type] special node
mount [-adfruvw] [-t external_type]
mount [-dfruvw] special | node
-bash-3.2# ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 root admin 68 Feb 12 10:58 .
drwxrwxrwt 6 root admin 272 Feb 12 10:58 …
-bash-3.2# hdid /Volumes/TimeMachine2/drw
hdiutil: attach failed - No such file or directory
Any help would be extremely appreciated.
