Drobo

Device is UTTERLY STUPID about the backup volume!

So I have a 5C & wish to start using this feature, putting backups in there (oddly enough) especially since the documentation says you can bitlocker a backup volume…

Since they’re currently in a folder on the main volume, I need more capacity, so I do the obvious, add some, and the damn thing creates an unformatted thin provisioned volume I don’t and NEVER WILL want…

When I enable the backup volume feature (with the unwanted volume highlighted) the stupid thing creates a THIRD volume, and I STILL can’t remove the unwanted one.

So how do I actually arrive at the simple, blindingly obvious config with two volumes, one normal Drobo type & one Backup type? I want to decide how my space is allocated, not have some stupid device guess wrong & refuse to let me correct it!
