I have a frustrating problem I really need help with. I have a Gen 2 Drobo that’s been working fine on Windows. I wanted to reset/format it and use it on my new Macbook. I reset the drobo and powered it down… Moved it to the Mac. Dashboard on the Mac does not find it but Disk utility does. After exhaustive research I tried to format using Disk utility. Error. I used first aid which did not produce any errors but nothing changed. I tried to mount it in disk utility but nothing happens. I moved it back to PC and dashboard finds it straight away. I have the idea to format fat32 but the only option is NTFS. So I format NTFS and move it to the Mac… Dashboard again does not see it, BUT the drive mounts on my Mac (in finder and on my desktop). But obviously I can not write to it as it is NTFS. I know there is software to enable this but I am hesitant to use it… Dashboard still does not see the drobo.
Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks for any help
