I’ve had a Drobo 4 Bay USB/Firewire (DR04DD10) working perfectly fine for the past 5 years. I had a 1 TB, 2 TB and 2 x 3 TB in there. I decided to replace the 1 TB with a new 4 TB drive.
I made the swap and everything seemed to be working fine, it was going through the data protection process for the past two days. Finally when it was close to done, my computer restarted itself. I logged back in and the computer was lagging like crazy, when I tried to click on the drive to access the data and it suddenly unmounted.
The lights on the drobo are still flashing green and amber as though it is still going through the data protection process, but I do not hear any hard drive noises or the fan running.
I’m afraid to power it off, should I just wait a while? Any thoughts or advice?
