No other problems. Drobo Dashboard shows the correct drives and capacities and comes up with 32.55 for 12+12+8+8+8 drives. The drobo shows 4 lights indicating about 40% and it shows the 4 lights in Dashboard. I’m assuming that the disk space and free space shown are reported by the 5N also.
A year or so ago I did a factory reset to gain the 64 TB partitioning of the drives. Assuming the drive prices would fall for large drives and it would be cheaper to add space rather than buy another NAS (I was wrong so I went with a 5N2). So it has the latest firmware and partition structure for a 5N.
I have been using GoodSync to copy work from my computer to the 5N. I have a 5D at my desk so I can do direct comparisons. The comparison between the main directories show no differences. I use TreeSizeFree to give me a look at the the size, files, and directories. And it says that all of the files are there. I’ve done some spot checking and they all seem to be intact with all of the real data. I plan on doing byte by byte compares (it’s only time) to verify I haven’t lost anything.
The oly thing I can think of is that I crossed some 32 TB threshold (I was down to 10% free space) and then powered down to move the 5N then When I powered on, this problem came up. In the event no one answers or has any ideas I was going to move some of the data to the new 5N2 and then reboot the 5N to see if I can UN-cross the line.
My other thought was to get a report from the drobo itself as to the size of each share and compare with the TreeSize program. I don’t know how to get a report like this so if you have any ideas…?
My other thought is that maybe the size of the largest share which is about 29TB may have grown to large?
If you can think of any ideas I’d appreciate it. Other wise I’ll have to do a hardware reset and try putting everything back.
