    A week ago, I got myself a Drobo (2nd generation). I installed it in Windows, when setting up I could only choose to format in NTFS or FAT32. I chose NTFS, but then went to My Computer and reformatted it to exFAT...
    Now the Drobo Dashboard doesn't recognize the file system and says it's unformatted. I can use it perfectly though...

    But when trying to get to the data on Mac OS X, I was unhappily surprised...
    Although the Drobo Dashboard does show the Drobo, I can't find it in Finder...
    It is visible in Disk Utility... but it's greyed out...

    Does anyone have any idea how to get into the Drobo data?

    It doesn't show up in Finder... I think it should be under Devices...
    The Drobo Dashboard does recognize it though...
    but under File System Format it says Unformatted...
    any idea what's the problem?
