The other week one of my 2 TB drives went bad. I had a 2tb Freeagent external drive sitting around so I ripped it open, reformatted the drive and replaced the bad drive with it. All seemed well with the Drobo (it’s a version 2).
Unfortunately, the time required to relayout my data keeps going up. It’s up to 146 hours left and keeps going up, while flashing green and orange the whole time.
I have 3.65 TB of data used on 2 2tb drives and 2 1.5tb drives. Should this be taking this long? I’ve tried following Drobo’s suggestions for restarting this process but it didn’t help - it simply restarted and kept taking longer and longer. Is there anything wrong with taking a drive out of a Freeagent and reusing it (I think it was a WD Green Power).
