5D + Time Machine + External Drive sync

5D + Time Machine + External Drive sync
Hi all,

I just bought my first Drobo 5Dt with 20TB and have set up Time Machine allocating 8TB, and then allocating the remaining 12 for external drive use.

I have another external Western Digital drive that I would like to clone and sync with the Drobo and was wondering what the best way to do this would be? I have read Acronis True Image is a possible method although the instructions are a bit vague in terms of existing partitions on the Drobo being wiped off if you decide to set up syncing.

I'm not sure what the best practices are but was wondering if I need to create 3 partitions on the Drobo before using Acronis to sync my 8TB drive to my Drobo - So, one partition for Time Machine (8TB), one for external Western Digital drive sync (8TB), and one for external drive use within the Drobo (4TB)?

Would Acronis be what others would recommend to clone and sync my Western Digital 8TB with my Drobo?

Thanks in advance!

Drobo Newbie
