Selecting Hard Drives

You can use hard drives from any manufacturer and with any capacity (the space available on the hard drive) with your Drobo FS/Pro FS/B800fs.

All Drobo devices support standard 3.5” internal SATA drives. If you are unsure, ask your administrator or hard drive retailer or manufacturer to verify that your hard drives meet this standard.

Drobo devices are not compatible with SSD, IDE, SCSI or PATA hard drives.

Warning: Any pre-existing data on the drives will be erased during installation.
