I’m a new Drobo owner so still getting to grips with the system.
I started with one 1.5 TB drive but have since added 2 x 1.5 TB drives.
After adding the 3rd drive I now have 732 gb which is labelled as ‘Unallocated’ (shaded in blue on the pie chart).
It seems that the Drobo has made my first volume up to 2 TB then labelled what’s left as Unallocated.
When I start my system Drobo now reveals the message “new volume detected” and asks if I want to format it. However the default volume Drive letter it comes up with is the same as my first Drobo volume and I can not change it. The same happens if I select format on the dashboard tools so I’m reluctant to procede any further.
Ideally I’d like just one big volume (not 2) which my system should support (Vista 64). Any ideas how I can get to that and what is happening here?
Any assitance much appreciated
