Just found this site , i hope some one can help
I have got a drobo v1 , with 3 x 1.5tb samsung eco green drive`s and a 1tb drive.
I swapped the 1 tb drive out for another 1.5tb samsung drive and all the lights on the side went a sold red , i checked the drobodash board and it said i have not put the new drive in , i checked it and i did not put the new drive all the way in.
So the drobo started flashing green/amber and it says 261 hours to finish on the drobo dash. I checked the drobo the next day and i`m now not getting any flashing lights at all , just 7 blue lights along the bottom and the power light is flashing , also i can not connect to the drobo dash board.
I left it till the 261 hours was up but it was still the same , the hard drives are warm to touch , so there some thing going on.
Is it time to re-format ?
Thanks for your help.
