Drobo in the past month has had 4 ejections without a prompt or shutdown. The first 3 ejection were due to a new firmware update. This last ejection was after the update. What could be causing this?
Connecting through a Hub
Compatibility issues with an OS update
Corruption in an OS update
Hardware problem internally
Using SMR hard drive(s)
Take your pick.
Also, try the following:
Try the following:
- Disable Power Nap. This is located in System Preferences> Energy Saver > Power Nap
- Uncheck - Put hard disk to sleep when possible
- Move Drobo in System Preferences, Spotlight > Privacy
- Plug directly into Wall outlet
- Run Disk Utility > First Aid on the Drobo
- Ensure you are using Supported drives, see: Can I really use any hard drive I want in Drobo?
Only bone I might pick with @Valorie 's response is * Run Disk Utility > First Aid on the Drobo* since no attempt was made to determine this was attached to a Mac,
I’d add as an alternative “run chkdsk /r”.
I’m really a novis here. Are you referring to a terminal prompt with “run chkdsk /r” Since I put the drodo in my spotlight privacy I have experienced no issues. However, doing a search makes that cumbersome. I have thousands of files I search that are in the drobo on an ongoing basis. Any other thoughts?
