Data Protection In Progress

My Drobo says data protection is in progress but its gonna be a few more hours. I need to leave and take my MacBook Pro with me. Can I safely shut down or sleep my computer in this time?

Will Drobo resume from where it left off?

yes you can safely shutdown your mac

drobo will actually continue doing data protection without a computer attached. drobo will not go to sleep (like it usually would), but will carry on doing data protection until it is finished… then it will go into standby
