2 little questions anybody?


Just a couple of questions I hope can be answered. I have searched this forum but can’t find any info.

Q1) My first generation Drobo is on its last legs can I transfer the disks straight into a 5N without losing the data?

Q2) If my 5N were to die can I slap the disks straight into another 5N without losing the data? (I have heard somewhere this is not possible on a 5N?)

Thank you for taking the time to read this.


Not sure about Q1, but Q2 does work. I’ve done it myself between an FS -> 5N -> another 5N.

Yes, you can move a disk pack from a Drobo FS to a Drobo 5N without problems.


Thank you all for your help :slight_smile:
