We are a company of professional engineers who have launched recently. The amount of workflow is so, much that it gets really difficult for us to get in the technical details of the hardware equipment we have on board. Therefore, I seek to know if anyone could tell me how to reset IP settings of Drobo 800fs to factory default.

Data Loss can occur if you reset Drobo with the disk drives installed.Reset Drobo 800fs

  • Start with shutting down the Drobo 800fs
  • Now just disconnect the iSCSI cable
  • Use the USB connector or the Fire wire to attach Drobo with the Host Computer
  • Now turn it back on
  • For version that are less than 2.0 in Drobo dashboard: Follow the directions and go to Advanced Controls-Tools-Settings-iSCSI. While in the version 2.0 or later, click Settings from the Navigation menu, and select Network.
  • For a possible reboot of the device you’ll have to select Automatically Configure (Default) option
  • Turn it down
  • Disengage the USB or FireWire
  • With the help of iSCSI connector reconnect with host computer
  • Now turn it on

Check IP settings, if everything went the way its mentioned then factory default values should be restored.

Thanks for your help. I was able to successfully restore many critical files from a corrupted hard disk. Your product saved me a great deal of time and trouble. Thank Your Very Much!

I wanted to extend my ultimate gratitude and thanks to you and your team. Not only did your company recover the data quickly and at half the price of other companies, everything was recovered and our office is back on track after the NAS failure. I really appreciate a company doing its business so well as Disk Doctors did; and will definitely sing your praises for all to hear. Excellent customer service all around. Thank you again!

Many special thanks for your support in getting my drive issues handled. I am able to access all the files that were recovered. You guys are great!

I thought I was missing a folder until I realized I was searching under the wrong folder name.
I am happy! We are good and all is well!

Thank you.

What do you do when a power surge destroys your hard drive and you loose hundreds of hours of work, irreplaceable images, and your ability to complete jobs for clients with looming deadlines?  My first instinct was to cry, then scream.  My IT manager tried and failed to recover my data and recommended that I try a disaster recovery service. We went on line and called several companies, and when we reached the Disk Doctors, we knew we had found a company that could help us.  I delivered my toasted hard drive to their Vancouver location late in the afternoon and by 6:30 am the following morning a representative had emailed me with a reassuring message and time line for the work.  The following Friday I received one of the happiest calls of my life. My data had been completely recovered.  I cried and screamed again, this time with joy!  Over the last two days I have been thrilled, delighted, relieved, overjoyed and reassured by the fact that ALL MY DATA is once again accessible. Disk Doctors are now on my top-persons list and I am telling all of my colleagues about their services!!!

Thank you!

My hard drive crashed leaving me without my critical financial information and research that is crucial to my business. After checking various vendors on the Internet, I chose Disk Doctor Labs because of their level of service, and they far exceeded my expectations. Aziz Mirza, the manager of Disk Doctor Labs in Norcross, GA, personally took charge of my account, quickly fixed the problems and returned my restored files within a week on a hard drive that I could return for an account credit. Throughout the process, Disk Doctor Labs kept me informed, responded quickly to my calls and delivered my lost files quickly, efficiently and at an extremely fair price. I recommend them unequivocally.

Thank you!
