  • Interesting timing. This past weekend I “downsized” from an original Mac Pro tower to a Mac mini. :-)

    I really wish the Qx2 had the ability to access the drives independently.

    For now the 4 drives I pulled out of my Mac Pro are in a pair of OWC Mercury Elite-AL FireWire 800/400 + USB2 Pro dual bay enclosures that allow “independent mode” use.
