Drobo FS folders in Finder Sidebar?

Hello,
Is it possible to put Drobo FS folders in Finder Sidebar? I can’t seem to drag them over there and I really want my frequently used drobo folders to be easily accessible over there.

Thanks,
-Jeff

Been years since I’ve used Apples, copy paste perhaps?

Nope, no way to do it that way. It is just strange to be you can’t drag and drop it I can put any other folder or even a share from a Windows PC over there.

Works for me…

if you are trying to do this with a share (top level folder) make sure it is mounted before you do it.
although when you un-mount, it will disappear, but will come back once you manually remount it.

look at the link below to find out a way to auto mount shares, although i don’t use this.

I checked Mount in the Drobo Dashboard, but I still can’t drag a top level share over - any other ideas?

Its showing up as a Mac/AFP share, maybe I should make it an SMB share?

You can have folders in the sidebar. Volumes can be placed in the gray area on the top of a Finder window. Right click the area to manage it.

Ok, now I get it - thanks!
