Picked up a drobo (2nd gen) with a share. Put a 1TB drive in, and setup the volume as 1TB. Allowed 500GB of data to be copied, so far so good.
Put in another 1TB, now I have the full 1TB data. All good.
Put in a 350GB drive into the 3rd slot… asks me to create another 1TB drive, with no other options I proceed. Volume gets created and can be mounted from XP / Vista.
However when I try and copy files onto the new volume, the drobo usually shuts off and starts rebooting.
I am sure this has something to do with the 350GB drive acting as a 1TB drive. Has anyone else had this experience?
Any ideas on what I should do to get around it? I do want to use the 350GB drive if possible…
