Hello Everyone, I have a Drobo S model number DRDR3-A connected to a OSX 10.10 Mac Pro. The user for the drobo told me that the 2nd drive was yellow then changed red, and then after rebooting her machine the 1st drive also started blinking red. So I am hoping that perhaps the 2nd drive failure is somehow causing a false failure in the first drive.The Drobo is not recognized in the dashboard software however the OS does prompt “The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer. With the option to initialize, ignore and eject.” We have selected ignore in the hopes of not accidentally reformatting the drive. The drobo was likely set up with the default settings, which I assume means that it can only tolerate a single drive loss. I have disconnected the drobo from the machine and powered it on and it still gives the same error. I plan on replacing the 2nd drive since it is the one that failed first and is giving an audible clicking sound and hoping that the drive in the 1st bay will come back.
Are there any tricks that you might suggest I try before proceeding further? Perhaps connecting it to another PC? Please let me know what you think. Thank you.
