Back up to a Drobo

Adding Drobo to Retrospect as a destination is easy.

Drobos that directly connect to your computer--DAS and iSCSI SAN devices like the 5C, 5D3, 8D, and B810i--do not need additional setup. You can immediately select them as a volume for your backup destination. See the video for an overview of setting up a backup destination. For NAS Drobos like the 5N2 and B810n, follow our quick video tutorials for step-by-step guidance:

Note that you can add Drobos by name (the one that appears in the Drobo Dashboard) or by IP address:

		smb://Drobo5N2/Public
		smb://192.168.0.5/Public
	

You can also create a smaller, isolated volume on your Drobo to store Retrospect backups on. Follow our step-by-step guide.
