I have a Drobo 4-bay (2nd gen) that I had filled with four 3 tb NAS drives. I recently swapped them all out for 8tb drives which made the Drobo split into two volumes. The Dashboard still shows one screen for overall capacity. I’m trying to make sure I understand how data will be handled, though.
Do I essentially have two separate drives/volumes and once run reaches capacity I need to use the other or does the Drobo manage it all and I can just keep putting data on the one?
Separately, what would happen if I remove two of the 8tb drives out and put back in the 3tb drives to get it back to a single volume size? Will Drobo reject this as it would be diminishing capacity? I don’t want to risk losing data.
