I regard this question under the 'odd-but-someone-had-to-ask-it" category.
I have a veritable Gen2 Drobo that has served me well for a LONG number of years. Recently I was informed to replace a drive; which I did. The Drobo is no longer seen in DD and I have the data protection - green and orange lights blinking at me - for 5 days now. When it was seen in DD I was told it would take 59hrs to do Data Protection, but that time came and went.
So my question is:
Should there be any drive noise, vibration or general telling-me-its-working noises, I should be hearing?
