When it comes to upgrading your Drobo to a larger or newer version, you have several options. Use the links below to navigate to the scenario that best fits your current configuration. In most cases, migrating your “disk pack” (set of drives) from an older Drobo to a newer one is as simple as removing them from the older one, and placing them in the new one. Also note that in most cases migrating drives is a one-way operation. Once you move drives, you will no longer be able to access the data they contain with the older Drobo.
- Your Drives and data must be in a healthy state.
- WARNING: DO NOT migrate drives when either Drobo is turned on. This can result in data loss.
- Firmware must be at current version and data accessible before you can move or migrate the drives.
