I have all Mac’s at home and I want to turn off the SMB on the drobo fs since I would rather use AFP. Can this be done? Should I make it a feature request?

When you mount from Dashboard, it does mount via AFP.

You can also manually map using AFP.

Go > connect to server > AFP://drobo-fs.local

But if smb is turned off then I don’t have mount via the Dashboard and I don’t have to mount via “Go > connect to server” either. Plus it will have free resources (memory at least) on the Drobo which can be used for something else.

Then it can be submitted as a feature request.
