My Drobo S only has USB2.0. My Mobo has on borad USB3.0 and esata. On board Esata is not seeing drobo in OS even though it sees it in bios. I was going to see if the esata to USB3 adapter would work in place of straight esata or usb 2.0.
So it would be Drobo > Esata > Adapter > USB3 > Mobo.
I know these konds of adapter can be tricky but I was wondering if anyone had experience. For the extra speed it may be worth my while.
No experience, but I’d think you’d be better off trying to get the onboard eSATA working rather than use a protocol adapter. Just seems like fewer things that might break spontaneously, and you’d get better speed of course.
