I have a Drobo FS that originally had 5 2TB drives (~10TB and about 7TB usable). Once of the drives went bad so I thought I would slowly upgrade the space on the drobo and replaced the 2TB drive with a 6TB drive so that the configuration is now
It is showing that I have 1TB left of storage and 7.24TB Used (approximately 8TB total) however when I look at the usage tab in the drobo dashboard, it shows.
Drives: 2TB + 6TB + 2TB + 2TB + 2TB + 14TB (12.73TB Actual)
However, I am seeing low space issue on the first drive (2TB) and the warning states:
“Yellow Warning: Drobo is running low on protected space. Replace the hard drive indicated by the yellow light.”
The one that is yellow is the first drive in the series and the drive in bold above (a 2TB drive)
Any ideas why it can’t use the extra storage on the 6TB drive to compensate?
