    :D Will I be able to bootup osX through the Drobo drive ?

    or

    :rolleyes: Will I have to restore osX 1st to the MBP HD, before being able to see the drobo drive ?

    As long as you're making a bootable clone on your drive, then yes, you can boot up into it.

    You can't boot up into something like a time machine backup though.
