I have had a 2nd gen Drobo for some years now which is currently connected to my 2011 iMac via Firewire. However, I am considering buying a Retina iMac which no longer comes with Firewire. So my question is regarding how best to connect my Drobo to the Retina iMac. Can I…
a. Use a Firewire to USB adapter and connect via USB3 - Presumably this would give speed equivalent to Firewire?? Is this even possible?
b. Use USB - I presume this will be at USB2 speed i.e. SLOW!!
Thanks for any guidance.
