i have an older (5 years) Drobo-FS. i have previously been putting 5.25" form factor internal hard drives in it. can it take/handle also 3.5" drives? the old Drobo-FS spec sheet says ‘3.5"’ drives, but i’ve been putting 5.25" form factor in and i wish to make sure before purchasing replacement drives. is the only difference the drive length? is the width and, most importantly, all the SATA connectors and power connector the same?
sorry if this is a rank n00b question, but i don’t know enough about differences in hardware for internal hard drives of different form factors to know if this will work. please advise at your earliest convenience. thank you.
