I have owned my Drobo for about 4 months now and have loved it. However, I now realize that I should’ve taken a little more time to think out how best to configure the space allocations. Hopefully I’m not the only one that rips packaging apart and plugs something in as soon as it arrives without even thinking it through! Here’s what I want:
-Mirror of 650GB startup disk
-1TB of Time Machine
-The rest for iTunes storage
I currently have 2 - 1TB drives in the Drobo b/c I pulled my 2TB drive out this morning to migrate data off the Drobo for the partition re-work. Now my data is safe on my 2TB.
My question is how do I go about partitioning the Drobo. I see posts about how people are using their partitions for different things, but I only get one possible volume name each time I try to re-format(see image).
Also, let me know if I’m headed down the wrong path. Now is the time to set it up right and I don’t mind your input. Thanks all! BTW- I’m a Mac
