We designed Transporter with our social lifestyles in mind. It lets you share, collaborate and back up files with other users located anywhere in the world. As a device you own and control, Transporter stores your data only on your local network and the local networks of other users whom you specifically authorise. In other words, it is completely private, unlike the cloud. And best of all, using Transporter is as easy as sending an invite to the people you want to share, they accept, and that's it. It couldn't be any simpler.


The award-winning Transporter will change the way you store, access and protect your documents, photos and videos by allowing all your digital devices to work as one. Privately. With no monthly fees. In other words, it's everything you love about the convenience of the cloud without any of the privacy or cost drawbacks.

So, whether you are looking for a direct attached solution for your personal use or a network solution to share with others… Drobo has you covered!

Drobo - Sync

Automatically Sync Files Between All Your Digital Devices

Transporter creates one window to your digital world, keeping all your files organised by automatically syncing your document, photo, music, and video folders across your devices. You also have an option to sync only the content you want on a particular device, making it ideal for adding terabytes of capacity to your laptops, phones and tablets.

Drobo - Access

Access Everything You Want, Right When You Need It

Whether you want to watch movies while on vacation or download documents on a business trip, Transporter gives you easy access to your files, from all your devices, regardless of where you are. Everything stored on your Transporter - regardless of size or type - is easily accessible using the free desktop, iPhone® or Android™ device apps.

Drobo - Protected

Everything You Care About, Automatically Protected

Protecting files offsite should be easy. The cloud seems like a logical choice - until you actually try. If it takes months to get your files onto the cloud, how long is it going to take to get them back when you need them? Transporter offers the easiest way to protect your files from fire, flood, or theft by automatically syncing files between computers and other Transporters.

Drobo - Share

Privately Share Anything, With Everyone You Want

The cloud is great for sharing a few photos, but what do you do when you want to share your entire photo or home movie collection? Enter Transporter. Starting at just $99 with no monthly fees, Transporter is the easiest, most cost-effective way to share your media collection with family and friends. Each Transporter can support Terabytes of data meaning you can easily share thousands of hours of HD video and millions of photos.

Drobo - Privacy

All the Convenience With None of the Privacy Concerns

Cloud storage services like Dropbox offer convenience, but also introduce a lot of risk. They store your files on shared servers and have terms allowing them to access, distribute, and even delete your data. Transporter solves this by offering all the convenience of Dropbox with none of the risk. With Transporter, all your files are stored on devices you own and control, are transferred directly between devices, and are never stored in the cloud.

Drobo - No Fees

No Recurring Fees Or Hidden Costs, Pay Once and Own It Forever

Tired of recurring fees? So are we. Hard drives are inexpensive, yet cloud storage services all charge big monthly fees if you want to store more than a few files. That's why we designed Transporter as a device you buy and own without pesky monthly fees. With Transporter, you can sync, access, protect, and share everything.
