Hi, I got a 5D yesterday and am running into an issue when setting up Time Machine. I’ve followed the instructions here three times, but for some reason the name of the sparsebundle is not being updated after the initial backup finishes and the Backups.backupdb remains on the Drobo rather than the sparsebundle.
I didn’t realize that setting up multiple volumes was an alternative to using the sparsebundle - I was just following the instructions provided by Drobo. As I originally set it up with one 16TB volume when I first got it, I didn’t realize creating multiple volumes was an option.
Anyway, now I’ve reformatted it into two 4GB volumes (w/ dual drive redundancy) so will have TM on one and use the other for additional storage.
