Can you use a 5TB drive in a Drobo Pro

Before I do something I will regret later, I thought I would ask.

Is it possible to use a Seagate 5 TB drive in a Drobo Pro?

Seagate ST5000DM000

Usually I use nothing but WD red drives of 3TB and nothing more. Any thoughts?

Drobo Pro
Drobo 5N
Drobo FS (really slow one to)

Seagate drives don’t have a stellar reputation, but it should work.

Thank you… I am finding that one out to be sure. Just wanted to check before something happens that can not be reversed.

I’m using HGST Deskstar 6TB in my 5N2 and they work like a champ.
