RAID 0 Performance Stripe
Both drives are combined together to create a single drive volume that's much faster and provides larger capacity.
RAID 1 Mirror
Both drives are used to write two "mirrored" copies of your data at the same time to provide an instant backup copy of your data.
Creates a larger drive by combining the capacity of two or more drives of the same or varying sizes into a larger drive volume.
Independent Mode (JBOD)
Available as an option via USB and FireWire connections, this mode lets you access each drive as an independent volume. This mode is like having two separate drives connected to your computer.
Drives not included – uses two 2.5" SATA drives.
Requires two identical model drives for best operation,
operation with non-matched drives is not supported.
OWC NOTE: OWC recommends that all drives used in RAID configurations be identical for best performance. This drive enclosure requires two 2.5" Serial ATA (SATA) drive mechanisms. Most computers produced since 2006 use Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives. Please make sure that the drive you wish to use with this enclosure is compatible. If you need an enclosure for an ATA/IDE hard drive, click here.
Because the amount of computer bus power provided can vary, use of the optional AC adapter
may be required for proper operation of higher power draw mechanical hard drives and solid state drives.
