Drobo

Re-inserting a set of four drives

New User
Drobo 4 bay FW 800

I have previously removed 4 X 1TB drives from my drobo
And now intend to re-insert them.

I intend to re-insert them in the same order, however if by accident they are not in the right order, will drobo re-initialise all 4 drives?

Will I get warnings of intended reformatting, which I could cancel out of and then re-guess the insert order, until there is no warning.

Many thanks

the order of the drives makes no difference - all information regarding the drives is stored on the drives themselves - insert them in any order you wish, drobo will be fine with them.

Thank you so much for your prompt and confidence inspiring answer
