DroboShare Drobo NAS mini-review
You can stick in new drives and even pull one out while it is running. Not only is it hot-swappable, it DroboShare miss a beat. I put the new drive in and within seconds it had recalculated the space available to account for the new drive's presence, all the while still copying over my data. Which could now fit thankfully. It is well worth bearing this little quirk in mind when buying a Drobo to ensure you don't force yourself into an emergency drive buying trip like I did.
Need for Droboshare software - [Solved] - Storage
You can use the Drobo Calculator to find out what would result from your chosen combination. The blue "available for data" section is the actual usable space you get. The grey "used for protection" section DroboShare the space used to ensure you are protected against drive failure.
Ideally you don't want any of the purple "reserved for expansion" showing as this is effectively wasted space. Final Thoughts It is worth remembering that the Drobo is fully automated. This means it will sometimes spin up randomly for apparently no reason in order to do maintenance to itself defragging and so on. For this reason, you may not want to put it in your living room or bedroom if you object to the sound of a fan and hard drives spinning up. It is not loud, but the DroboShare level does exceed that of the average desktop computer fan occasionally.
Droboshare and sonos
Another point worth making is that the Drobo Dashboard software is not required - you can use the Drobo like any network share from any machine. However it does seem to be required for setting it up and I would recommend installing it on your main machine so you can keep tabs on storage space and make changes to settings if necessary from there. Overall, I very much like the Drobo. It takes the DroboShare of redundant storage and makes it painless and easy.
All you need to bring to the table is a bunch of standard 3. DroboShare final configuration contains three GB drives bays 1, 3 and 4 and one GB drive in DroboShare 2.
This provides me with just over 1. And if a drive failure does occur, one of the lights on the front of the Drobo will turn red to alert me and I will DroboShare pop it DroboShare and push in a new one.
We tested an unexpected drive swap and immediately got an alert from the DroboShare to all the email addresses we specified. Should you dismount the drive by accident, the client will auto-mount it again for you every time. This process took about 16 seconds for us. The drives do power down after a set period of inactivity -- unfortunately this period is neither openly documented we hear it's about 15 minutes nor configurable. Maybe, maybe not -- but for our money, a Drobo with DroboShare definitely takes the cake in its category. The DroboShare DroboShare a Y-cable for the power cord, so it doesn't need another brick. The email alerts worked well and immediately. We tested an unexpected drive swap and immediately got an alert from the DroboShare to all the email addresses we specified.

Should you dismount the drive by accident, the client will auto-mount it again for you every time. This process took about DroboShare seconds DroboShare us. The Droboshare turns the Drobo storage enclosure into a real file server.
The Drobo by itself must be connected to a computer through USB or Firewire, but the Droboshare lets computers reach the Drobo over a network. After that, other computers can reach the Droboshare through. DroboShare, a companion product to the Drobo USB storage system , extends Drobo’s protected and expandable storage to other computers on the same network. Just as Drobo deftly shields the user from the technical details of RAID DroboShare Array of Inexpensive Disks.
