I just installed my brand new Drobo with:
1x Western Digital WEAD Green 2.0 Tb
3x Western Digital WEAD Green 1.5 Tb
The second drive (1.5 TB) just failed.
I’ve copied 160GB of file yesterday, and today all seemed to word well in the morning, but when resuming from sleep, the drobo woke up, and the drive #2 failed when I tried to access my data.
So I’ve rebooted to be able to access the dashboard (because he was unable to detect the drobo), and now I see:
Data protection in progress, 23 minutes left, and a progress bar.
I’ve read the manual, but I can’t figure out what it really mean ?
Before, I was using a RAID-5. If a raid-5 goes degraded, you can still access your date with 3 drive out of 4. In 23 minutes, will my data be available or will I lose everything ?
