RE: Drobo mini noise level?
hi, are you sure it is the fan which is making the noise?

sometimes its the overall vibration which causes lots of noise.

(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)

My fans have become extremely noisy as well. It is not the drives, but the fans as I have removed the drives and the fans still make a horrendous noise!

If your Drobo is still within warranty, then ask for a replacement with their support
