I have recently purchased a Drobo v2, and I’m looking for some options to share it over a wireless network. Droboshare or attaching it to a dedicated machine aside, I’ve found that there are a number of wireless routers that support external USB drives, but I’ve also heard that these often have problems recognizing drives with very large partition sizes.
Has anyone out there had success attaching a 16tb ntfs formatted Drobo directly to a wireless router? I know that the Airport extreme supports that partition size, but I’m primarily a PC user, and I’m not sure that I want to be tied to the HFS+ format for the foreseeable future.
It’s nearly impossible to find detailed info on the maximum partition size that a router will support, so any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
