I have had a wonderful Gen 3 for 4-5 years. I decided to upgrade to a 5C. Everything is fine, update drivers, no problem, all systems go.
Put drives in 5C, power it on. Get to 5 yellow lights plus blinking row of blue. Wait 15 minutes, no change. Maybe I need to boot PC? Boot PC. Run Daskboard, need to install new drivers, wait 5 minutes, takes 30 mins. Whatever.
All green, now I add 5th drive to set, this was the whole reason for getting a new Drobo - need more space. Awesome, drive recognized. Need to reboot Drobo. Sad, takes a long time.
You have a new volume on your Drobo, it needs to be formatted. No, no, no formatting for me. The whole point is more space for current volume. Now I have 3 volumes, where I only had two before. One is “Not formatted”. Everything seems to work, but …
Why a new Volume? Is ignoring it “OK”??
