Drobo's latest generation
I have the now discontinued DRobo FS and it has worked with no problems. I have 3 TB drives in it.
Your good summary of the DRobo units includes:
If the enclosure itself fails, you put all the drives into another enclosure of the same kind, and again, everything carries on.
What this means to me I'm not sure. They no longer sell the DRobo FS. So if the box itself fails am I SOL? Or will I be able to take my drives and put them into one of their current models and carry on?
It certainly sounds like they released the 5D before it was ready. Sadly, their customer support response is all too common these days.
