Here's my problem. I have a WD 1TB worldboo NAS. It's formatted in XFS. Vista can it on the network.
My problem is this my 1TB NAS has outgrowned itself, and therefore, I got a Drobo capable of handling upto 16TB in future.
The Drobo is at the moment connected by USB to my pc. I formatted the Drobo to XFS too, I do not have a Droboshare yet to use the drobo as a NAS.
I need to transfer all the data from that WD nas to my new Drobo, as now I have the capacity.
The problem vista is not seeing the drobo in my computer, and now I cannot transfer the data from the WD NAS. I need the drobo to be formatted to XFS as, XFS can handle files bigger that 4GB, which 98% are.
I managed to get it sorted. Vista cannot read xfs. So instead, the xfs HHdrive is connected to a linux box, and from the linux which can see my 1TB Nas, I am copying dat from the nas to xfs drive this way. (, a bit a slow, but it's working
