I have spent the best part of a day trying to get my Drobo 5D working
My Drobo 5D started life as an HFS+ system on my old Hackintosh
I just migrated to Windows 10 and wanted to format it to use on this system
The Drobo Dashboard can never format the unit as NTFS - I get the “formatting failed, try again if this doesn’t work restart” error - this never resolves
I tried formatting using disk management and both assigning a drive letter and also not assigning a drive letter
Either way if I can see the drive I can’t copy anything to it - or worse even - I can’t even see the volume in Explorer.
I have the latest firmware on the drobo and I am running dashboard 2.8.5
I can’t seem to find any install guide anywhere in these forums or outside for how to setup a 5D on Windows 10
Can anyone help?
thanks in advance
