gents… good day
I am planning to have drobo pro and attached it to my mac mini server to use it as a share storage over my home network , before i buy it i have a couple of questions…
1- i will stick 8 drives with 2TB in the drobo pro with total 16TB capacity, when i reach 16TB of storage i will stick another 8 drives as a new storage capacity, suppose i need to use the old drives how can i use them over the drobo again !!!
As i know that once you put a drive drobo will automatically format it … do I misunderstand something or this is what really happened in such case ??
2- dual disk redundancy is used for data protection, it’s also used to reach the files faster, as i know it copy the file three times for protection purpose hence when you try to read a file you will read it from the three copies which will give you a faster read process since it reads from three copies instead of one copy, is it correct ??
thats it for now
thank you in advance and please accept my apology if my English is not good enough as i not an English speaker…
