Not a good sign. Had Disk Utility do a fsck, which it complained about, so I reboot to recovery mode…and with nothing running, this little gem appears.

Guess I’ll be creating a boot thumb drive then attempting a full wipe/rebuild that way instead.

Update: or not. It simply refuses to do any low-level process on the drive. Appears completely pooched. Time to order a new drive – and some tools to open the case.

And whilst I’m doing some diags on my 8TB Drobo connected to my laptop, it starts exhibiting signs of unhappiness–slow access and a few random disconnects.

Not. Good.

I guess that year on the road in the RV with a few power outages every once in awhile might have had some negative effect.
