Drobo

Replacement Drive

I use mine for Time Machine and just had a red light on one of my bays. I purchased a new 1TB drive but I don’t know how to format it for the Mac file system or does it automatically get formatted when I install it?
According to Drobo it can only be done through Dashboard but as I have an old until Dashboard doesn’t recognize it.
Thanks

What model Drobo do you have?

A very early one probably first gen. I went ahead and just inserted the drive anyway and it now tells me that Data protection in progress do not remove any drives. I can also see that the total disk space now includes the new drive. So I guess it recognizes it formatted it and is now distributing the data to the new total drive space.

Good deal. :slight_smile:
