I currently have 2x1TB, 2x500GB. I bought 2x1.5TB to ‘upgrade’ my drobo. But … when I attempted to unplug the first 500GB disk it wouldn’t really work. The disk wouldn’t slide out but it just got disconnected.
I looked at my screen to see what was going on on the dashboard, looked back at my drobo and the thing was off all of a sudden … oh goody! Then I inserted the drive again (with a gently 1mm push) and the reboot animation started. Stupidly the drobo failed to realize that this was in fact my old disk so now it’s creating the backups for the disk.
Now, the question is … can I just unplug that first disk again and stick in the bigger one? Or do I have to wait for this to complete?
On a sidenote … my filesystem got messed up again. And now I can’t even mount in OS X anymore. That should be fun … . Repairing my filesystem while this thing is massaging the backups.
