Will Drobo 5D reformat an existing NAS drive removed from a different 5D?

Will Drobo 5D reformat an existing NAS drive removed from a different 5D?
I recently replaced a hard drive with a larger capacity drive in one of my 5Ds. I would like to use the drive that was replaced as another capacity booster on my second Drobo, swapping one of the original 3 TB drives for the 4 TB drive that I replaced in my newer 5D.

I assume that the Drobo will re-format the 4 TB drive when I make the swap with the older 3 TB drive. Is that assumption correct?

If the Drobo system does not automatically reformat the swapped drive, how do I go about clearing off one of these NAS drives independent of a Drobo?

I am on a Mac platform.

Thanks for your time and feedback!
