SD backup of a Drobo to another one ?

I have 2 Drobo 5D, let us call them A and B. They show on the Mac desktop as 2 volumes each , "virtual" volumes since each represents the data stored in an array of HDD drives arranged in a kind of RAID.
Now A contains data and I want to use Super Duper to backup A data on Drobo B. The first backup should be "erase all files on B then copy".

There comes my question : Will SD erase only the data seen by OS X on the Drobo B volume ( as I believe it will), or is there a risk that the special Drobo software (which runs the Dobo system and is scattered on its 4 drives) be damaged (or erased too) ?

After the initial backup, there will be "smart" ones and there should be no problem there. I should be just like backing up one non bootable volume to another.

Thanks in advance for expert advice !
