is drobo dashboard required

Is drobo dashboard required to be installed on all my windows 7 pcs AND apple macs with time machine?

sorry to ask such a basic question… first week with my drobo.

hi mdh, afaik, you’d only need dashboard to use certain features such as upgrading and firmware patches.
(only have a pc here though)[hr]
unless you really dont want it, you might as well have it

Thank you so much.
