Disk Utility Unsupported Feature with Drobo
Please be advised that we do not support re partitioning or re-sizing of any volumes with disk utility or any other 3rd party hard drive utility on the fly. This can lead to file system issues, that can be unrecoverable.

Disk utility can be a wonderful tool to verify and repair volumes, but we do not recommend using it to re-size or re partition in any form. Please do not do this when directly accessing a Drobo Volume.

When setting up your Drobo, it is always best practice to format and begin your volume using dashboard. If your volume size needs adjustment, you will need to copy the data to another location, so that you can reformat and recreate the volume to the size you need.
