I have got a Drobo FS with 2x2tb Drives currently installed, giving me approxinamtly 1.8tb storage space.
I have filled the majority of this up and only have about 450gb free space left.
I have bought another 2tb drive to add to the unit but a friend has added almost 1tb of media (scanned pics, music, video) to the drive for me to add to my collection.
My question is, can I transfer the media to the unit as it is currently (obviously, I understand that, if possible, it would mean that I would not have and disc failure protection) and use up some of the 2tb reserved for protection, then add the third drive, once the media is removed, to bring the Drobo up to enough capacity for disc redundancy?
I hope that this question makes sense.
