I've never used a Drobo, though I've been tempted to buy. My main worry
about any black-box RAID device is: what happens when the chassis dies
and I need some data that is on the disks? It seems that the only option
is to repair or replace the chassis, because the disks are formatted in
a way that I don't understand.
