My Gen 2 Drobo had 3x6T and 1x4T drives.
I got the Yellow Alert and upgraded the 4T drive to a 6T. Drobo gave me a Red Alert and pop-up window saying I added a drive to increase volume and had enough for a new volume. Would I like to add it Now or Remind Me.
Since I didn’t know what to do, I clicked Remind Me. The window dismissed and Drobo displayed the alternating yellow (orange) and green lights. After a few minutes the status said started showing time until date protection was complete (170hours, LOL!)
A half-hour later, I still have the Red Alert. Normally this would have changed back to Yellow by no. So:
Should I be worried that Drobo didn’t stand down the threat level from Red to Yellow yet?
Should I tell Drobo to make a second volume the next time it reminds me?
If I do, what happens to my 16T of data on the Drobo? Does half go to each volume or do I have to move it myself?
Do I have two Drobo icons on my desktop where there was one?
