The operation of your Drobo 5C starts with the dashboard. I'm using four Toshiba 1TB drives with this unit today and starting from the top the status menu gives an overview of the 5C. To the right, we have a diagram of the bays and installed capacity while the left side shows the interface we are using and firmware revision.
Selecting a particular bay will give us information on the installed drive to the left.
Moving down to the capacity menu, we can see our data usage and its layout.
The tools menu, allows you to manage the Drobo by turning LEDs on or off, formatting a volume or updating the firmware.
Diving into settings, you can choose single or dual drive redundancy and enable or disable drive spin down.
Settings for the software itself can be found in preferences. Here you can setup alerts via email and configure updates.
