Drobo 5C REVIEW It is a Beast and First Self-Managing USB-C Storage Solution

  • Kensington Lock Port — This is a really nice security measure since the 5-bay Drobos are very portable. A lock is not included, but you have the option to add one on so that someone doesn’t just walk off with your device.
  • macOS Time Machine Support — You can actually use your Drobo as your Time Machine backup drive. To use it, you simply select the Drobo as the drive you want to to use when your Mac prompts you about Time Machine. To learn more about Drobo and Time Machine, click here.
  • Drive Spin Down — While I love having access to my files at all times, I also want my drives to have a long life. Drobo provides a good answer for this with Drive Spin Down. This helps to save electricity and prolongs the life of your hard drives because they aren’t constantly running. You can adjust the time of your Drive Spin Down through the Drobo Dashboard as long as you are logged in as admin.
