Add old drives to new Drobo without losing data
My Drobo 5N experienced water damage due to a basement flood. The drives were not affected but the unit is not salvageable. What is the proper process to put the old drives in a new chassis so I do not lose any data? Do I need to copy the data elsewhere first and then copy it back?

Make sure the new Drobo has the latest firmware and is OFF before inserting drives, then you can turn it on. It should recognize the disk-pack with no issues.
