We have 3 Drobo v2 here. Two of them have been perfectly uneventful, but the third one has had 6 disks identified as damaged one after the other and that had to be replaced.
Now it could be bad luck but statistically it seems extremely unlikely.
I suspect that either:
- the drives are damaged and I’m unlucky (hum…)
- the Drobo misidentifies them as damaged and they’re fine
- there’s a problem with the Drobo unit and it’s leading to all these drive corruptions.
I, of course, reported the issue, but so far the only answer I got was that “the drive is damaged and needs to be replaced”. No comment about the more than unusual recurrence of the issue.
Has anybody here seen anything like that?
