High Sierra and Drobo

Rodney
Has anyone with a Drobo upgraded yet? I think that Drobo says their boxes will work with High Sierra, but APFS won’t be supported until later this year.

This isn’t a problem for me, but I do have a Time Machine partition on my Drobo, and I have an iMac with an SSD, so I’m not so sure that Time Machine would work after upgrading to High Sierra. Normally I upgrade at the earliest opportunity, but I’m hesitating this time...

You shouldn't have any issues. Only your SSD boot drive will be converted to APFS and TimeMachine volumes must remain HFS+ no matter what for now.
