Got the Drobo and hooked it up , expecting it to take a while to initialise , it was nearly instant ! Slick device
After my misadventures with a couple of dead hard drives I have set up a Drobo Fs, my new "insurance policy" My @ Drobo survived a drive failure during replacement & a power outage during re-protection. What a fantastic system. New drobo arrived and I put old Disk pack in and started it up , Everything ran perfectly –I am so happy I like the flexibility and reliability of Beyond RAID technology of drobo . Source : Twitter
