Drobo

Compatibility of data on 5d drives with latest Drobos

Hi guys,
I have an aged 5d still going strong but I’m wondering if the enclosure dies and I buy a new Drobo (say 5d3 or NAS) whether I will be able to insert the drives and have the data readable. Or are the drives only readable on another 5d? Can anyone help me? Cheers, Patrick

According to the Migration matrix drives from a 5D will go in a 5D, 5D3, or 8D. Once moved they couldn’t be moved back. Drive packs from direct attached units won’t migrate to NAS units or vice versa.
