I’ve got a Drobo Gen 3 formatted with NTFS that I’ve been using with my Mac. I’d like to make it a HFS filesystem so I can use the Drobo with the Time Machine backup utility.
Paragon Software has a free NTFS to HFS conversion utility that looks like it’d be perfect for the job, but I’m a bit wary of using any kind of third party filesystem utility with my Drobo. Has anyone tried this? Anything to report?
Also, can anyone comment about whether my concern over filesystem utilities is warranted or is the Drobo’s interface to the computer truly robust enough to handle these unusual utilities? i.e. If a utility would be trustworthy enough to work with a conventional external drive should is it equally trustworthy to work with Drobo?
