Should I tell Diskwarrior to Rebuild Drobo Directory Structure?
Hello, Should I tell diskwarrior to rebuild the directory structure on my damaged Drobo S or (if it's even possible as I barely know how to use Diskwarrior) just copy all the which appears to be available in the Diskwarrior Preview window:

The preview is not function. It's just a preview.

I went ahead with the rebuild but it failed on the first attempt I think because I forgot to take the Drobo S out of Read Only mode.

The rebuild appears to have worked on the second attempt:

RE: Should I tell Diskwarrior to Rebuild Drobo Directory Structure?
hi seamus, am glad you got things sorted out with diskwarrior (it seems to fix a lot of mac issues)

also thanks for including screenshots as i have never seen what the front end looks like..
though unfortunately, i still have not seen the front end, as im afraid the screenshots you posted did not appear to load Smile

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
