I wanted to turn off the thin provisioning on my Drobo 5N but my format button is missing from the Drobo Dashboard software. I tried with version 2.7.1 down to 2.6.8 on both OSX and Windows 10, and it’s just not there anymore. I downgraded my firmware from 3.5.7 to 3.5.6 hoping this was a firmware bug, but the format button still ain’t there.
I’m obviously logged in as Admin.
Am I missing anything? Anyone with a 5N that could quickly check if format is showing up for them?
hi, while the volume on a computer (such as windows explorer) might not show you a true representation of how much free space in on the overall drobo, if you have a look in dashboard though that should have the info there for you.
