Useable Space Question


I have three Drobo 5Ds. One is now down to 10% free space, with a solid yellow warning.

What percent free space is considered “green” or ok?

I’ll balance my files between Drobos but it’d help to know how much I’m looking to move (to select which group of related files to move as one block) and what percentage of use would just set off the yellow light on the next Drobo.


At around 90% capacity is when it begins to alert you and it also slows down transfer speeds by design.
