I’ve got an older Drobo unit (DRO40-D), and all 4 drive bays are filled. I now want to upgrade the smallest drive with a larger one - does it matter that the smallest one is in the bottom position, and was the first drive initially installed?
Since this system contains all the backups for 5 different computers, I’m a bit reluctant to do anything like this without knowing for sure that I’m not going to make a mess and have to start over.
Also, I’ve heard different recommendations about whether or not to shut down the drobo when swapping drives. (?)
