Drobo USB drive name keeps changing

Post by smudge » Mon Feb 26, 2018 9:58 pm

Hi all, I have a data robot or Drobo as they are known, a RAID array storage drive that works as a USB drive. Usually this mounts fine but occasionally when my system crashes and I have to reset, and the drive mounts with a new name. Ordinarily this is not a problem but I have all my media on this and my Plex server is now looking for a drive that doesn't exist.

usually this mounts under:

/media/[username]/Drobo

Then the first crash this became:

/media/[username]/Drobo1 then

/media/[username]/Drobo2

Can I clear the issue and set the drive to say Drobo permanently? fdisk -l reads:
