swapping disk sets for different volume
I am wondering if I have a current 5-disk set in the 5D and I need to install new disks for a completely separate volume, can I put the old set back in later and reinstate the old volume?

You'll have two different "disk packs", you can not mix and match or combine them, they will be separate. Is that what you mean?

Yes, I understand. I just don't know if there is something I need to back up or retain to go back to the other disk pack once I am done with the second one.

No, the disk packs are sort of "self contained" in that respect. The Drobo is just a blank machine with no disks. One you put in a whole and complete disk pack, then that is the "drobo" that boots up. I would make sure you update the Drobo firmware and Dashboard software before proceeding.
