Help Replacing a Drive Drobo-FS

Help Replacing a Drive Drobo-FS
I have a drobo-fs. I remove a 2TB drive (#3) and added a 4TB drive i get data protection in progress appx 76 (was 96) hours remaining. drive #3 is flashing red other drives flashing green/amber. I get a pop up saying drive error replace drive but then get a message saying to replace the drive flashing red. after getting a message that drobo detected a new drive.

i'm assuming that when i pulled the 2TB drive i didnt wait long enough before adding the 4tb drive.

do i remove the 4tb drive (flashing red) and wait for drobo to prompt to add the drive?

Your Drobo: "Drobo-FS" has reported the following informational alert.

Drobo detected a new drive was added. but it's flashing red

so if it's flashing red does that mean it's safe to remove

Thanks in advance for your help!

(am just linking this to your other thread)

(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)
