Last night all 5 Drive lights flashed red and the Drobo turned off. It has not subsequently restarted. I have tried the following to get it restarted:
i) Checked the power supply and removed/replaced all of the connecting leads. The power supply brick still shows a green light. This therefore does not seem to be the problem.
ii) Removed and replaced the drives (in the correct order).
iii) Restarted the mac.
I suspect that the fault is with the Drobo itself but grateful for any contrary views. If the unit has failed, if I buy a replacement, will I be able to simply move the hard drives across (assuming that they have not also failed)? If I opted for a new 5N rather than a new 5D would this still work?
Thanks so much for any knowledgable help from the forum!
