About once a week now I am getting red alerts from one of my drobos. when I go to the advanced menu it shows my lower three drives as green and fine. But it shows my top drive as empty (even though there is a new 1.5 TB drive inside of it).
I’m told to add storage that my data is not protected. If I unplug the unit and replug it in and put the exact same drive that is already in there back in, it reads it as a new drive and completely rebuilds my whole unit (after about 3 days).
I wouldn’t mind so much except for that it seems to be doing this about once a week. it’s like the unit won’t recognize the drive even though it is really there. When I reinsert it, it’s like a new drive and works for another week or so.
Any ideas why my unit isn’t recognizing the drive in the top bay after a week or so of use? I’m running the latest firmware and drobo dashboard on a Vista PC. This has happened for about the last 4 weeks straight.
