Ok ...

This post is for anyone thinking about using drobo to protect your data ... dont.

I have a drobo and a drobo fs .... I backed my drobo up to my drobo fs last year (thank god !!) However since the drobo was supposed to be protecting my data I have not back the data up since (all of 2012).

The drobo never showed any signs of failure. As a matter of fact the lights on the enclosure are still all green. However ... like many others (i discovered after reading online) ... today when I booted up somehow the file system became corrupt and I lost ALL of my 2012 data.

I tried Diskwarrior and it recreated the folders .. but they are now empty.

Since this is my first critical failure ... I have learned my lesson.

Does anyone have a suggestion for fail safe data protection ?

Thanks ... Im going to get drunk now.

M
