Drobo 5D MACOS can't repair disk

I was having no problems working with my almost 5 month old Drobo 5D, but suddenly my Mac gave me the message than I can't write in my disk, only open or copy files; while suggesting I should format the whole disk, but I have no way to save 8TB in another disk... so hopefully someone can help me fix my disk without having to format.

My Drobo dashboard show no problems, but I can't seem to pinpoint the exact problem that lead my computer to think that my drobo has an error.

Some information about my devices are the following:

Computer: MAC OSX Sierra 10.12.3
Drobo: 5D 17TB (15.46 TB Actual) used 8.07TB
Drobo drive format: MAC OS Extended

I ran the first aid in Disk Utility, but it didn't work.

I also have Windows 10 that have a special software that opens MacOS configured drives (MacDrive Pro) and was able to access my Drobo in my Windows all this time, until today. MacDrive Pro from Mediafour that has a repair option but also failed in the attempt to fix watever is wrong in the disk, even worse in the Windows 10 it doesn't even have the option to read and copy files from my disk.

I'm adding a link with the reports of the errors shown by the computer:

I still have Drobo care waranty, but I can't get a hold of the support team with this number: 1 (866) 426 4280 ....

So as of now I'm totally relying in the forum to shed some light into the matter.
