I have a Drobo FS with 5 1TB drives.
I was getting a yellow light on the top drive so I got two 3TB drives from Monoprice specs as follow:
Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723030ALA640 (0F15328) 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA III (6.0Gb/s) 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Enterprise Grade (Pulled Drive)
I swapped out the top drive and after the FS went through Data protection for less than an hour, the indicator light on the new drive started flashing red and Dashboard informed me that I had a “Failed Drive”
Is there any obvious reason why this drive shouldn’t work?
Did I just lose the drive lottery on this one?
