Flashing Yellow Lights
My Drobo S indicator lights have been slowly blinking yellow lights for about a week and my iMac will no longer recognise the drive. I looked around a few sites and saw this is meant to show that the Drobo is protecting data and it should not last too long. It has happened before but stopped after a few hours. What does this mean when it won't stop for an entire week?

RE: Flashing Yellow Lights
hi tipicard,
usually, the protection/rebuilding process, lasts for about 1 day per 1TB of data that you have on it (though it could be a bit slower if something is accessing the drobo too)

can i check how much data you have on your drobo, and also if the lights are actually flashing/blinking yellow and green?

(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)
