I have a Drobo S running with Dual Disk redundancy. The other day, One of my drives was showing a failure (first one ever) with a blinking red light. I ordered a new larger drive (up to 3TB from 2TB) and swapped them out.
The rebuild process began, and took 16 or so hours to rebuild the data. The Drobo was never restarted, but the PC did once during the process.
The first time I got around to checking on it, the dashboard is telling me the same slot is bad (blinking red) on the new HDD (WD RED NAS Drive) I pulled it out and put it back in, but it’s too smart for that - same thing. All other lights are solid green
I know it’s technically possible that the new drive is bad, but those odds are beyond slim. Any advice on what to do next?
