I’ve just finished hoovering in the office and noticed that my Drobo V2 had a red light on the bottom disc bay. I also received an email saying that a critical situation was in progress. According to my Drobo Dashboard, my Drobo has only 3.36MB free space left and tells me:
“Drobo is critically low on capacity. Insert a new hard drive into the empty bay indicated by the red light”
What is happening here? Has this drive just died or is something else up? I had plenty of free space before so can’t for the life of me work out whether the disk is dead or there has been some sort of catalog corruption or other to make the machine misreport.
I currently have four drives in my Drobo, all 1TB disks.
I have checked that I am running the latest Dashboard and Firmware and have also run Disk Repair using Disk Utility. This has found no problems.
Any insight would be much appreciated,
