I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. Protecting your data is very important. That’s why Drobo is awesome. They’re all about making sure if you have a hard drive crash, there’s another one on standby with your protected data. Until now all their enclosures were big (4 hard drives and up). The Drobo Mini changes that. This small enclosure takes 4 2.5″ hard drives (like you find in a laptop), and can store up to 3TB of data. It’s simple, plug in the hard drives and turn it on. Nothing else to do but start saving your data to it.
