Drobo 5c with USB3 adapter

Drobo 5c with USB3 adapter
Hello,

I'm looking for a direct access solution for my office and noticed that the Drobo 5c is half the cost of the 5D.

I don't have USB C on my computer, could I get a USB 3 to USB c adapter and use the Drobo 5c on my computer's USB 3 port?

Thanks

RE: Drobo 5c with USB3 adapter
hi djonette,
as far as i know, the 5c mentions here that it is compatible with usb 3.0 and usb 2.0, and that it also comes with a 'type c' to 'type a' connection, (which should be the default basic usb connection that most pendrives use) for example as mentioned here:
http://www.drobo.com/storage-products/5C/

it might also be worth dropping the sales team a quick email or something just to double check though,

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
