Drobo Stops Responding on Vista x64

Drobo Stops Responding on Vista x64

I use a Drobo for all of my backups. Most of the time it works exactly as advertised, but sometimes the computer thinks that it's no longer connected. The lights on the Drobo show it still thinks it's connected, but nothing can access it. My workaround right now is to reboot the Drobo, which usually fixes the problem.

Not a permanent fix but perhaps faster than rebooting the drobo: Try refreshing the USB connection: Control Panel > System > Device Manager (win7 navigation path), select 'computer-name' at top, r-click and Scan for Hardware changes. If that doesn't work perhaps try using the usb "Safely remove hardware" applet first.
