Drobo mini over Thundebolt on windows 8.1

Just got the mini yesterday. Couldn’t get my ASUS Z97 Deluxe based PC to recognise the Drobo Mini but a daisy chain connection recognised the external drive attached. No problems over USB 3.0 though. Anyone has any experience with this issue? Appreciate the help. Thanks

Drobo on Thunderbolt is not compatible on Windows, I’m afraid…



2 x Thunderbolt ports; second port for daisy chaining Thunderbolt devices (Mac OS X only)
1 x USB 3.0 port

Not sure how the external drive could be detected though… hmm…
