Drobo C only one USB-C?

Drobo C only one USB-C?
No daisy-chaining then.

Q: Shouldn't the USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) be able to provide power directly to the DAS?

Hoping for a Drobo mini with USB-C powered by the port, with a second USB-s port as well

Drobe 2:nd gen, Drobo 5N & Drobo 5D

The USB-C port on the Drobo 5C is apparently only USB 3, not Thunderbolt 3. Hopefully we will eventually get a Thunderbolt 3 drobo, and then it will make sense to ask for two ports.

Oh, didn't think it was a downgrade to their 5Dt, very odd strategy imho.

Thanks for the info, guess I have to wait for another one with TB 3 then...
