The new Drobo FS (which stands for file share) aims to offer the easiest way to both back up data successfully and share it easily on your home network.Now you can know in this post How to change the Drobo FS…..

Data Robotics’ Drobo FS has room for five drives, and a basic 2 TB internal drive ranges these days from about $125 to $200. Get five drives, and you’re looking at $1,100 plus.

The Drobo offers multiple bays for peace of mind. Instead of just dumping a 2 TB drive in the unit as your back-up, Drobo puts the data on at least two drives, so if one fails, you’ve still got the data on the other drive. Add three drives, and you’ve got the original, plus two.

Unlike the original Drobo, which connects to your computer via a USB or Firewire cable, the FS hooks up to your network router, via ethernet, and quickly shows up in the network drives section of your computer — in my case, both my Apple and Windows machines. I transfer material from computer to computer all the time, and the Drobo FS was a much easier solution than using flash drives.

As it is, I own the original Drobo, and have filled it with four 1 TB drives. I haven’t been able to move data from my Windows computer to the Apple, because the drives in the Drobo are formatted for Windows. It’s long been a source of pain that you can’t swap external drives from Apple and Windows computers. But with the FS, and the files over the network, no such woes. Your files show up on both systems.

We know it may seem expensive,” says Jim Sherhart, Data Robotics’ senior director of marketing, “But we can’t make (the FS) fast enough to satisfy demand. We’re 200% ahead of where we thought we would be at this time

After years of pleading, the fine folks over at Data Robotics finally gifted you with a Drobo NAS. They called it the Drobo FS, but we all know what the real skinny is. But is the five-bay, Ethernet-friendly storage robot really a dream come true? We’ve had nothing but success with it in our Time Machine setup, but as with pretty much any networked drive, we’ve heard reports here and there of frustrations and complications.

The knock on those products, I’m told from friends of mine who edit video, is that the stand-alone NAS drives are really slow when it comes to heavy duty video files. I used the FS to access a big 10 GB video file in Apple’s Final Cut Pro and saw no speed issues. Flipping through hundreds of photo files on the FS did seem slower, however, for thumbnails to pop up.

For those who have sprung for the FS, we’re curious to hear what you’d change about the setup. Need more drive bays? Would you prefer a few extra interface options? Would you make the box a little less noisy? Go ahead and get honest down in comments below — we know you need an avenue to vent after the week you just survived, right?
