Hi there! Whenever my Drobo 5N would get close to capacity, I would receive a yellow light that it was getting full, I would replace the drive and all would be well. So recently, I had a yellow light and replaced the drive with an additional 2TB of data… it ran the data protection process like normal, but when it was finished, all my lights returned to green, but my capacity in Drobo dashboard stayed the same at 8GB of available room. I am able to get data off of the Drobo, but I can’t add any more data to it or alter any files on them. So I added an additional 2 TB of data, it ran the protection process and it still says the same thing.
My drive configuration is… 8TB + 8TB +6TB +6TB +4TB… I recently replaced 2 4TB with the 6TB in this configuration with no change.
Also, I should note that over the past month, the Drobo has been changing my file names…I can still access them, but it renames it with wacky alphabet characters. There are few, and very random.
I also recently upgraded my firmware to 3.5.11 before replacing the drives, so I don’t know if that is possibly part of the issue. Thank you for your help!!
