I had a Drobo Mini for some time now and the two 1TB disks that were in bay1 and bay3 were not enough, I installed a new 1,5TB drive in bay2 and everything was “drobotically” fine. Problem aroused when I wanted to add another 1,5TB in the only free slot, bay0. This slot proved totally unresponsive to any drive I tried in it. I removed all the drives from the existing pack to ensure data is safe and played around with a couple of drive makes and sizes. All have the disk indicator led (the long, curved one) on the top left lighted red and my Drobo Mini telling me there is no disk installed in bay0.
Anyone had similar issues? Any hint on what I could do? Don’t have a Drobo distributor here in Hungary I guess.
Thanks for reading. Should you have an idea, thanks for helping.
