OK.. I just now finally made it in to my studio. When I left yesterday I had a bunch of files copying and was copying most of the day...so it never had a 15 minute break. I just came in and popped off the cover. All drives were silent and cool to the touch.. so it does appear everything spun down on its own. Nice.

Are you willing to make a test?
Pull out one of the disks, insert a new one, and see if it can rebuild it smile

I have the 4 bay.. but was reading a Drobo review the other day..(can't find it now) and he was reviewing the 5 bay. He decided to test that functionality and pulled a drive then popped it back in... then another and popped it back in.. then he pulled a drive completely and then another completely. He said that not only did it not falter but that all data was still accessible.

I would not want to try a 2 drive failure on a 4 bay though.....

Actually.. that's a great idea. I have a 5th drive so after I load this puppy up a bit more I'll try that.

Sorry if lead you to understand that.. But I thought the swapping might contain steps that are useful for the rest of us to see, hence the video request. wink

Dangit!
Now the 5 bay Network model is on sale for only $100.00 more than I paid for my 4 Bay.
