Available Space - conflict with Time Machine
My Drobo stopped backing up a while ago,

Drobo 4 Gen / MAC Pro Tower

The Drobo Dashboard says:
Firmware 1.4.2 [1.254.50341]
USED 2.71 TB (75%)
FREE 915.96 GB (25%)
Total 3.60 TB

Its linked with Time machine which says:

The backup disk needs 755.90 GB for the backup but only 217.13 GB are available. Select a larger backup disk or make the backup smaller by excluding files.

Am i reading the numbers wrong? Do i need to put more storage in?
Thanks for any help offered.
