I have an older Drobo II (2nd generation FW 800 & USB) that had a disk pack, about 3/4 full (edit:2011.09.18 actually about 1tb), and I backed up the data and pulled the pack out.
I now need some data from that pack, but just realized that the Drobo has been updated to newer firmware since the original pack was removed. Forgot the original firmware, but it was at least 12 or more months ago.
Is it safe to mount that older pack in the SAME BOX with the newer firmware??? or do I run the risk of turning the pack to ‘raw’. If not compatible with the new firmware, HOW DO I RETRIEVE MY DATA??

BTW, anticipating the answer, ‘use your backup’. The back up contains all the raw NEF files (Nikon raw format), but none of the PSD modifications (Photoshop working files), hence I need to retrieve what I did to several RAW Nikon files in the form of PSD files.
So, yes, my digital negatives are safe, but my final ‘digital print’ is on the disk pack.
