When I turned on my “Drobo S” today (after first turning on my pc that the Drobo S is connected to), shortly after the Drobo finished booting up (all bay lights green), I heard the drives in my Drobo "Clicking away/tapping away (a “Seeking like” sound, same sound as when I copy data to the Drobo; like the drives are being accessed) for about 5 minutes. During this long drive clicking period, the Drobo Activity Light remained Dark (off).
… I also have the Windows XP Indexing Service “OFF” (un-checked) for this drive.
… So, what is causing this drive clicking activity ???
… Is this normal ??? (and is it safe to write data to and copy data from the Drobo when its drives are making this long clicking activity for 5+ minutes )???
