RE: Bay Empty
hi yellowhorse,
if you get a chance, could you post back more details about which drives you had in which slots (when there were working) and what sizes/makes they were, and the current situation?

it might be a loose connection but please dont eject anything with the power on just yet, and we can try to see whats going on?

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)

RE: Bay Empty
I have a 5N and just ran into this same issue, called Drobo and unfortunately the unit is out of warranty and no support unless I pay for it.

I waited for the data protection to complete then ejected the drive in question (first/top drive bay) and put it back in. No change. I figured it was a dead drive so I went out and bought a new one, put it in and still no change...still shows as empty.

I put the original drive back in and restarted the unit, still no change.

Now what???

Well I just powered it off, ejected and re-inserted the drive in question then powered it up and it seems to be working fine again. What do you make of that? Should I be concerned that the Drobo unit is going bad?
