    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.

      Drobo 5C is a spectacular device for simple archive needs. Being able to combine different size and speed drives is a game changer. Combined with WD RED 4TB hard drives it's fast enough, but also very very quiet. I'm using it as a archive drive for my commercial photography and videography work, and storing my finished projects and daily files. I'm editing off my MacPro's internal SSD, but this drive is speedy enough even for basic 4K editing using Final Cut Pro X. Unfortunately, this isn't a Thunderbolt version and has no m2 SSD expansion port at the bottom, but it's more than enough for me. That said, at my office I'm using "LaCie 6big", a 36TB Thunderbolt 3 drive which is super speedy and quite amazing in professional workflow. But, it's also annoyingly noisy (both cooling fans and drives themselves) and gives you a glitch or two from time to time while playing 4K video files off it. Yes, it's generally faster but not as much as one would expect given the huge price difference. Anyway, this Drobo is a gem and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Simple, innovative, fast, quiet and simply brilliant.
