Drobo

2.5inch to 3.5 inch adapter for drives

Has anyone ever tried or is using a adapter to use a laptop drive in the drobo. I am looking for one myself but im not sure if its even feasible given the mounting in the drobo and power the drive would need.

its been tried, it works fine, you just need to find the correct adaptor - anyone which positions the drive in the right place will work fine since the connectors are identical

anyone know of a connecter thats guaranteed to work ?

no sorry,

im just curious why you would want to use a much more expensive drive?

i have it spare and its cheaper than buying a new drive. I will always have an adapter then as well.
