Is it safe now to connect two Drobos simultaneously?
I remember, in the early Drobo days, it was strongly recommended NOT to connect two Drobos at the same time as this would somehow mess up both devices. I do not remember what the reason behind it was, but it was always strongly advised not to do so.
Because I need to reformat one of my Drobos, I need to copy the data somewhere else and I just don’t have enough space on my internal drives, so the second Drobo is my only chance.
Is it safe these days to connect two devices at the same time?
My first gen Drobo is connected via USB and my second gen via Firewire800, should that matter.
