Drobo

Reboot computer during protection

I recently bought two new hard drives to add to my drobo. I have two new 1.5TB drive and will be pulling out a 1TB and a 500GB drive. I have already pulled out the 500GB and put in one of the new drives. It currently says it will take 22 hours to complete.

Is it safe to reboot my computer while its doing this? I wanted to shutdown my computer to put the 500GB into it and then start it back up again.

Yes. The rebuild is independent of the Drobo Dashboard and the connection to your PC.

Thanks I just wanted to make sure since I know the Drobo goes into standby when you shutdown the pc, I just wanted to make sure it wouldn’t do this while in a rebuild.
