I have a question about replacing a drive in my Drobo.
My Drobo has 4 bays and I have 4 1TB harddisks in it.
Recently the top drive got a red light and the dashboard said i had only 10% free space.
I then took the drive out and inserted a brand new 2TB disk.
All lamps started to flask orange/green as the Drobo was working. According toi the dashboard I should leave it to work for 40 hours (can this be true?).
Anyway … the 40 hours has now passed, and guess what?
Now the dashboard says I have only 3% free space (and i haven’t copied anything to it since I replaced the drive) and that I should replace harddisk no. 2

So now I am really confused - i had hoped I would get more space by adding a larger drive.
Does anobody have similar experiences? Is this normal? Did I do anything wrong?
