Let’s see – 75 hours to rebalance after replacing one drive and I have three more drives to do. That’s 12.5 days of waiting for the automation to do its thing.

It would take maybe 36 hours to rsync all of my Drobo’s content over to a few external USB drives then I can just swap all the drives in one shot, do a low-level rebuild, then rsync the content back over.
