we recently upgraded from two 1st and 2nd gen Drobo DAS devices to a Drobo 5N. All data is copied and setup and works.
My forum searches didn’t return the desired results, and the documentation on how to setup Copy as app on the Drobo 5N left me with a few question marks. In case the following questions have been asked, my apologies and I would be grateful of you could forward me to the answers! (end of disclaimer… ;-))
I would like to setup Drobo 5N so I can remotely access all files and backups on the device. We have currently around 7TB of data, and there is no affordable cloud plan for that amount of data (yet). I saw that Copy might be able to do that with a free account- but what I didn’t fully understand is:
a) can I make ALL data on the drobo 5n available for remote access?
b) can I do that without mirroring any data to the cloud?
c) if yes to a and b, what’s the easiest way to achieve this?
So before I start messing around with renaming folders and copying files, I’d love to hear from you knowledgable people out there! Thanks in advance!
hi, there might be a way if the 5n is plugged into a computer which is always on, though am not sure about this but please hang in there as there are several users with more app experience who may be able to help.
