Drobo

Old drobo moving to new Mac

hello all,
I have an old drobo Model DR04DD Product Name Drobo (Gen 2) Product Serial #
TDB090621746 with all my photos and videos on it. My old Mac died over 10 years old! So we have a newer lap top I want to move my drobo too. Im afraid that its going to want to reformat or something and erase all my photos.
Also dashboard ? what version do I install so the drobo will mount on the newer laptop and not erase anything.
thank you for any help you can offer

Hi Mark,

Since you are still using Mac there won’t be any need for reformatting. I presume since it is a new Mac it is using HFS Plus file system. Mac OS Extended, also known as HFS Plus or HFS+ is the file system used on all Macs from 1998 until now. On macOS High Sierra, it’s used on all mechanical and hybrid drives, and older versions of macOS used it by default for all drives.

As for dashboard and firmware use the link below, it has all the versions to install as per your device and operating system.
