hi squadron leader, Smile
could you take a picture of your dashboard where it shows the 5 slots?

what you could try is to backup your data (which doesnt sound like much so should be fairly quick)
and then to try powering all off, and while power is off, to swap the bottom drive with top drive and then to power back on.

if dashboard still shows it empty, then there isnt really a fix for a hardware fault as doccris mentioned, other than replacement etc

(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)
