My drobo often decides that it needs to rebuild the set.
Neither of the HDs have failed, and it will continue to function fine until the next time it just decides it doesn’t like one of my Drives and it does a rebuild.
When this happens the second drive in my 2 disk set usualy appears with a RED light, removing and re-inserting it gets it back running, or often I simply shut down and restart the Drobo to get it running.
I would LOVE to know what the heck is going on, I first thought that it was a dodgy connector on the Drobo, this is supported by the fact it normally happens when it gets bumped or moved. However I can’t rule out a dodgy drive.
A Human readable log may tell me what the heck is going on, but all I get is a red popup telling me it cant currently protect my data.
How the heck to I find out what is really going on?
14hours+ of rebuild each time is getting annoying!
