I purchased a Drobo 5D and filled all 5 bays with 4 TB drives anticipating a setup as follows: Bay 0 - A CCC back up Bay 1 - iTunes media Bay 2 - Redundant backup of Bay 1 Bay 3 - Photos media Bay 4 - Redundant backup of Bay 3 I set up the Drobo and was surprised to learn that: 1) I don't have anything close to 20 TB of space (they cap me at 16 tb with about 10+ being "usable"; and 2) the functionality (as best I can figure) works as a single volume which doesn't give me the ability to manually set the system up as I had hoped to. Instead, it seems I just point data at the Drobo and it puts it on there as a single volume and backs it all up (even the CCC back up which I don't need to be redundant) as it wants to. My questions: 1) Is there any way I can manually configure the system as I had hoped to? If not... 2) How does installing a CCC backup affect the drives? Should I partition a section and hopefully just direct the backup there? And if I do that, is there any way to keep the Drobo from making a redundant backup of that clone? Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance. P.S. I did consult the Drobo K-Base but didn't find it that helpful for what I am asking.
