Failed drive for DROBO 5D - OK for SMART still under warranty…
<<Why does a drive work in my computer when my Drobo storage device flags it as a bad drive?

It is understandable that you would be confused or suspicious if your Drobo product flags a bad drive when the drive works fine in your computer.

If a drive produces a lot of errors in a short amount of time (it's going bad soon), Drobo storage devices display a red blinking light to indicate a failed drive. Your computer may not catch the bad drive as early in its failure process as your Drobo product can. This difference in perception is especially exaggerated if you format the disk before testing it in the computer and/or it has just a small amount of data. Eventually, the computer will also flag the drive as bad.>>


I Totally get it.
Problem is I have a drive still under warranty that failed.
It’s a NAS drive (WD RED for NAS - That is OK for you according to http://www.drobo.com/storage-products/choose-drive/)

But this drive when formatted for OS X is considered as good and pass the SMART test!

What can I say to the seller?

Is there an application that can flag this drive as bad according to your rule for a DROBO 5D?
