Blinking Lights after Reformat

I reformatted a Drobo 5N using Dashboard. It completed successfully. But lights are still blinking green/yellow - data protection in progress. That doesn’t make sense since the data was wiped clean when I reformatted (running OS X 10 Yosemite).

hi alcyone,
can i check what happens if you exit and relaunch dashboard… does that show you any additional information as to the drobos used and free space or its current status?
