Was running out of space on my Drobo 4bay Gen 1 and looking into upgrading to a Drobo 5bay FS when I managed to score another Gen 1 new off ebay for £129.
The problem is that I need a couple of additional 2TB drives to go in it as well as a couple of Seagate ST32000542AS drives I already own. The thing is a lot of the new drives are Advanced Format 4k which my old drives do not so I’m a little bit concerned about mixing and matching. I have also read a lot of bad reviews about the Samsung and new Seagate Green drives so I’m really confused now.
Please can someone recommend me a drive that would be compatible with the above scenario so that I can start moving my data between my two Drobo’s?
