I just plugged in a new drive into my Drobo and now the Drobo says it needs 38 hours to protect my data! That seems like an awful lot of time for a half-full drobo. Anyway, I was wondering if the fact that it is being plugged into my Mac (USB) actually somehow slows it down. So I was wondering if it is safe to eject it and just let it reorganise the data while unplugged. Is that possible at all? Is it safe?
Thanks for any insight
