Drobo Mini, Windows 10, Thunderbolt -- No Connection

Drobo Mini, Windows 10, Thunderbolt -- No Connection

I have a good working drobo mini (bought Jan 2014), 4x1TB 2.5" disks, which I use through USB normal port.

I miss the speed I had using it with a MacBook Pro and Thunderbolt cable.

As now I use an HP Spectre x360 Notebook, running Windows 10 Home 64 bit, which has 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, I bought at amazon a USB-C Thunderbolt3-Thunderbolt2 adapter, which does not help me connect the drobo mini using the thunderbolt cable. (getting back to a MacBook Pro is not an option Smile and I do need to increase transfer speed since that Drobo Mini has all my Virtual Machines I need at my consulting work...)

Is Drobo Mini thunderbolt port 2 or 1 compatible?
Is it about the thunderbolt cable that came originally with the Drobo Mini?

Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.
