Another question on Data Protection/Replace Drive

My 5D is in data protection. 4 drives flashing yellow/green. Within the dashboard it does not tell me how long the data protection process will go but it does say not to replace the dead drive. that drive is now listed as EMPTY. However, I’m getting messages across the top of my computer that only last a second that says to REPLACE the drive. So what do I do? Wait for drives to quit flashing or replace the empty drive? Need help ASAP. Drobo is not showing up as mounted on computer so I cannot access data.

That’s a confusing situation. I don’t have an answer for you and it’s too bad that it’s all crickets here.
