Not long ago I upgraded a few of the drives in my Drobo. Replaced 2x 1TB with 2x 3TB. I would like to use the 1TB drives in my workstation and one of my render nodes as a secondary drive for caching simulation data locally vs over the network. (I do 3d computer graphics and sometimes do fluid/particle simulations. These simulations will not start calculating the next step of the simulation until the cache data for the current frame has been written to disk. Saving the cache data locally during the simulation saves a great deal of time)
However when I connect the drive via SATA cable, it is totally un-accessible. I can’t mount it, format it, anything. Would appreciate any suggestions.
