I’m new to Drobo. One of my customers has brought me a Drobo 5D device. After getting it started and detected which was no mean feat for some reason, one of the drives was showing as “Warning” but after about 24 hours now shows “Healed”.
There is also a pop up message “Warning Drobo is running low on useable space. Replace the drive indicated by the yellow light with a larger capacity drive”
The drive with the yellow light is the “Healed” drive. Is it fixed or just low on capacity?
My understanding with RAIDS is that drives should have the same capacity. Since the highlighted drive is problematic and wants replacing should I replace like for like or will a larger capacity drive give the extra space?
