Time to Brush Up on Drobo Data Recovery

Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:41 am

Just to close my contribution to this thread, my customer returned my hard drives and RAID enclosure yesterday and I refunded all but my attempt fee from the $1,000 security deposit he provided part way through the process. After many weeks of effort running ReclaiMe's Drobo recovery program trial against the clones/images on a PC running a fast i7 with 16GB of memory, it was stalled at 38% complete with virtually no disk activity and limited memory usage. He has abandoned all hope of recovering the data. ReclaiMe tech support suspects that the file map is damaged/incomplete and that scuppers any recovery hopes. Very disappointing.

And, if memory serves me correctly, my theory about drobo clients not putting much value on their data stands true with this client.
