Thumbs Up Drobo volume search indexer / cataloguer (exists here)
Hi guys, i posted this as part of one of my other threads but i think it deserves a post here:

something i found useful.. is a tool called "cathy" v2.28.3 by r.vasicek
it takes a while to "catalogue" a drobo, but its really good, helps me find things, and with a double click, it shows me the directory structure where it is, and i can then launch it or open an explorer window to it etc.

every so often (every month or 2) i do a catalogue refresh at night on my v1 drobo and so far so good.
btw it can do a lot more things but i just use it for basic searching

(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)
