New drobo mini - Format seems long...

just received my band new drobo mini unit along with 4 x Seagate Spinpoint M9T (ex Samsung) 2To 9.5mm.

Everything is solid green :

Back PSU plug = solid green
Back power light = solid green
Front lights = solid green

I'm formating NTFS using the latest version Drobo Dashboard using the included USB3 Cable on windows 7 machine.

As the windows reads (translated from french) : "The format may take up to 5 minutes and will reboot this unit. Be patient and let Drobo to end the format"

More than one hour now, no blinking light that indicates activity...

Here's a screeshot of the current state

Why is this taking so long ? What should I do ? Wait a few hours more ?

Thanks for any help
