Changing Drobo Mini possible?
If the Drobo Mini is damaged, can I switch the HDDs in the new Drobo Mini and it works?

Yes. As long as you migrate all the drives together. Position doesn't matter.

Drobo provides fault-tolerance, it's NOT a substitute for regular backups.

Here are the steps:

1) Make sure the new Drobo Mini is powered OFF.

2) Move/Migrate the disks as a pack into the new Drobo Mini.

3) Ensure all the disks are seated and power on the new Drobo Mini.


*Note:

Do not insert the disk one by one while the new Drobo Mini is powered ON. Any drive that is inserted into a Drobo while is power ON, it will be formatted.
