Hey there, I know Drobo don’t generally ‘qualify’ drives as most hard drives work but I noticed that Drobo specifically qualify the Western Digital 2 TB Green drives in their knowledge base. Model: WD20EADS with firmware: 00R6B0.
I just got two WD 2TB drives with one in my Drobo as I type relaying out. But noticed that though my drive is the same model (WD20EADS) my firmware is different, being 00S2B0.
I’m presuming that this is pretty new as a google search turned up hardly anything. But with Drobo explicitly qualifying the other firmware. Should I be worried about using them?
