Add Windows Support for the 8D

Add Windows Support for the 8D. I have had my Pro for 8 years, it is time for an upgrade.


Absolute approval. I can not understand how to bring the device without Windows support on the market.

Well, I’ve been waiting for Thunderbolt support for my Drobo Mini which Drobo promised for 6-7 years now…

Good Morning Leroy what support did you require regarding Thunderbolt for your Drobo mini?

Well, can the Drobo Mini run on Windows via a Thunderbolt connection?

Yes It can please take time to read the following manual.

Drobo Mini

Are you saying that it is compatible with Windows over a Thunderbolt connection?

Because that I’m aware of, none of your products are. There are lots of threads of Windows users complaining about that (e.g. https://amp.reddit.com/r/drobo/comments/anuedn/no_thunderbolt_for_windows/), and resources showing that to be the case (e.g. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1338778-REG/drobo_drdr6a21_5d3_5_bay_thunderbolt_3.html “lease be aware that the 5D3’s Thunderbolt 3 ports are only compatible with Mac, while the USB 3.0 Type-C port can be used with both Windows and Mac”).

Sorry I miss read your question and yes you are right for windows only USB 3.0 type- C an be used for Windows.
