Drobo Dashboard 2.5.3 with 5N & Windows 8

I’ve spent about 5 days trying to get this working, and still only have part of the Apps working. I still can’t get Time Machine to allow me to Share my Drive so I can see it in Explorer. I’m not a Computer Genius and find this really frustrating. Why can’t they make a Dashboard, so all you have to do is install it & it works. Not to mention the Apps that go along with it.
