Adding a volume / partition Drobo 4 Gen

Adding a volume / partition Drobo 4 Gen
I've just replaced a 1TB HD with a 4TB HD in my Drobo 4 Gen

It now reads as:2TB/ 2TB /4TB /1TB
The Drobo Dashboard 3.01 Firmware 1.4.2 OS X 10.9.5 Drobo 4 Gen / MAC Pro Tower. Used 1.52GB (0%) Free 4.51 TB (100%)

I reformatted the volume as one at 16 TB (the recommended maximum). I used to have it set up as two volumes as i thought that was recommended, but can't find how to do that again and don't want to partition outside of the drobo dashboard.

Apparently Drobo Pro and Drobo S have a volume management option on the dashboard but mine doesn't.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Many thanks. Gherkin
