I recently purchased a Drobo and I was wondering, what happens to the Drobo if it's in the middle of a rebuild and there's a power failure? I know that the Drobo cannot protect against a disk failure when it's rebuilding the array, but I haven't been able to find any information on what would happen if a power failure occurs during a rebuild.

If you just purchased it, test that. – Olli Feb 28 '11 at 11:21

All Drobo storage devices have internal batteries which protect critical information during an unexpected power loss.

One would assume drobo engineers also protect data when performing a rebuild.

you can make a post on the Drobo forums
