Since Drobo's so-called "BeyondRAID" is analogous to a custom RAID 5 implementation, will using a drive with Time-Limited Error Recovery features enabled be of benefit to the Drobo array? I haven't been able to find any information in the Drobo knowledgebase.

Have you asked the Drobo's support? They're pretty responsive (at least for me). – liori Sep 1 '09 at 18:22
    
I haven't called, but that's my next step if the folks here don't know. Like I said, there was nothing about it in the knowledge base. – David Rubin Sep 1 '09 at 20:12
    
Any update on this David? – Cheekysoft Sep 27 '09 at 21:28

Talked to Netgear and Drobo about a month ago about it. They told us that TLER is supported and we created a quick post about it at http://www.abmx.com/articles/improvements-in-software-raids.
