Hey guys,

I originally posted this question here but I think it may have got buried: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=153138

Has anyone tried using a Drobo V2 as an enclosure? There is no information in the wiki and only one (irrelevant) result came up for the search term, 'Drobo'. I would want a single FAT32 partition with the following data stored on it:

A. .wbfs Wii games (for USB Loader)
B. VC and WiiWare titles on emulated NAND (for TriiForce)
C. My entire collection of GoodMerged GoodSets and NDS ROM collection (for emulators)

Would each set of data be accessible in the following scenarios (with reference to http://drobo.com/resources/drobocalculator.php ):

1. A Drobo with 4x2TB HDDs, providing a total of 5.5TB available protected storage space
Create a smaller than maximum allowable FAT32 partition size (say, 1.5TB) with the remaining (i.e. 4TB) formatted as NTFS.

2. A Drobo with 4x1.5TB HDDs, providing a total of 4TB available protected storage space
Create the maximum allowable FAT32 partition size of 2TB with the remaining 2TB formatted as NTFS.


Thanks,

Nick

    But bees are top tier insects
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    well I sometimes hate those insects too, but I don't really fear any insect, besides centipede is not really a true insect, true insects have six legs only
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    spiders are araknids for example...they have eight legs
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but they are still more related to insects than some other creatures
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    @K3Nv2 how is chupacabra related to insects or anything else we talked about?
