RE: File access from Android device.
hi, i dont think there is a specific app built in though there is a thread here which suggests a few apps, (but it is about a year old)

if your main aim was to get some files that were on the 5n, onto your android phone such as some photos or music or video clips for later viewing when traveling etc, then the easiest way would probably be to simply connect the phone to the computer (probably via a usb or small usb port) and to then simply copy and paste the files from drobo to the phone storage folder)

but there might be a way to use another product called a Transporter (via connected-data) which users can use to access or store files on the go, via wifi or when your phone has internet access, and the data stays on your own device/transporter instead of something like dropbox where your data is stored on their servers for example.

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
