Blinking Lights after Reformat
I reformatted a Drobo 5N using Dashboard. It completed successfully. But lights are still blinking green/yellow - data protection in progress. That doesn't make sense since the data was wiped clean when I reformatted (running OS X 10 Yosemite).

RE: Blinking Lights after Reformat
hi alcyone,
can i check what happens if you exit and relaunch dashboard... does that show you any additional information as to the drobos used and free space or its current status?

(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)
