& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)

can i check in case these lights are possibly flashing amber and green? (if so, your drobo could have experienced a drive failure and rebuilding at the moment). It could be something else, though would be good to confirm the above first before trying other things, just as some other users have also mentioned amber as red or orange too.

Hi there. I'm having the same issue although it has been flashing for a solid week. The thing also that the drobo will disrupt my boot sequence when restarting my computer. the drobo that i am using is around 8 years old and I have a feeling its on its last legs.

hi dom kardum
i have also experienced some issues with my computer if a usb device was plugged in during a shutdown or a restart (usually a restart), where in some cases it hanged until the usb cable was removed... maybe in your case you could try shutting down and then once your computer is powered off, you could try removing the usb cable from your computer (or firewire if that is what you have currently) and as far as i know the drobo should still continue its rebuild... this way you can still do your restart of the computer, and hopefully your rebuild should finish slightly quicker (in case something was accessing it while connected)

btw if your drobo is rebuilding with flashing yellow and green lights like cheryls was, then it usually takes about 1day per 1TB of data that you have. the older models are much slower, but hopefully you can try to correlate a bit between how much data you had and we can try and work out how much more it might take for your rebuild to finish.

btw 8 years is pretty good Smile i think ive had my gen2 for about 7 so far Smile
