Cloning/copying when drive goes bad
I was cloning a drobo 5d to another global 5d with the new 64tb volume configured using carbon copy cloner and a drive on 5d being cloned failed about 5 hours before finished (very bad luck). I was wondering if the data cloned from the old volume should still be ok because the other 4 drives are ok and drobo says you can continue to read data when this happens. Or if this a situation of who knows so i shouldnt take any chances and reclone with the failed drive replaced? Any views appreciated!

RE: Cloning/copying when drive goes bad
Hi,

as long as it finished cloning then it is fine, drobo can survive a drive failure and carry on operating as normal
