Migrate from Drobo FS to Drobo 5N
Since I can't acces my Drobo FS, I consider buying a new Drobo 5N.
I will make a migration from FS to 5N (1x 4TB, 1X3TB, 1X2TB, 2X500 GB).

Can anybody tell me if the Drobo 5N will take the 2 x 500GB?

Thanks

RE: Migrate from Drobo FS to Drobo 5N
hi jostaline,
it looks like this is possible, based on the migration page here which mentions the migration process:
http://www.drobo.com/resource-center/migration/

there is also some more info about it (including some advantages of doing it in a certain way) which can be found here:
http://drobo.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/dow...http://drobo.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/downloads/products/TS-0138-02_migrating_drobofs_to_d

(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)
