Another Drobo tale of woe

oops I also had a Drobo failure that I mentioned before.

Interesting take although “there’s a big risk in getting locked into a proprietary system like this” would apply to any RAID enclosure. Since blocks are written across all the disks in a RAID set (except RAID1 of course) you would not be able to pull a single drive out and get workable data.

As a side note, when I upgraded my home system the new motherboard’s Intel RAID ship read the existing RAID configuration (two RAID 0 stripe sets created by an older Intel RAID chip) just fine. Glad Intel (and Asus) keeps their stuff backwards-compatible!
