Drobo

Replacing Volumes

If have a 5C with the 5 drives. If I shut it down, and put all new drives in, it would start up a whole new 5-drive volume.

Ok… if I take out the new volume, and put the original 5 drives in, will I still have my original 5-drive volume with contents?

Yes, and Yes. As long as you keep the drives together you should have no issues. Drive order should not matter, but keep the pack together.

Make sure the Drobo is OFF when you do this though, and make certain the drives are fully seated before turning ON…
