Product Features

BeyondRAID technology

Protects your data without any intervention - even in the event of multiple drive failures. Switch from single to dual disk redundancy with a single click.

Enhanced backup for Time Machine

Pairing Apple’s Time Machine with Drobo improves your data protection, ensuring your data is safe in the event of hard drive failure.

5 x 3,5" drive bays

Supports up to five 3.5” SATA II/III hard disk drives or solid state drives. Drives of any manufacturer, capacity, spindle speed and/or cache can be used. No carriers or tools required.

USB 3.0 Type-C

USB 3.0 offers high-performance connectivity.

Power outage protection

If power spontaneously goes away, the Drobo stays alive long enough for the data to be written to disk, ensuring your important information is always safe.

Second volume for backups or full disk encryption

Drobo 5C allows for a second, fixed volume size. Drobo limits the amount of storage space you specify for the second volume. The rest of the capacity is available for storing other files.
