RE: drobo bay still showing red after replacing two drives
hi kinjo, it probably depends on where you are, but amazon might be a good place (i think its better if the order is fulfilled by them in case of needing to return but have a look around)

in terms of what drive, if you already have a 4TB drive in your system that has been working well, its probably good to try and get the same one again in terms of brand and model, simply because the firmware in your drobo might be more likely to recognise it, than buying the latest model.

(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)
