DIY Bundle: OWC Data Doubler Kit + 500GB HGST HDD
OWC 2009 Mac mini Data Doubler Kit, 500GB HGST Travelstar 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive and OWC 5 Piece Toolkit

OWC Internal Hard Drive DIY Kit
Everything you need in one package to replace your 2009 Mac mini's internal optical drive with 500GB of fast (7200 RPM) storage.
Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your Mac mini's internal SuperDrive with the OWC Data Doubler. Bundle includes bracket, screws, tools, drive, and detailed installation guide for complete all in one solution.

Then, just install the entire assembly into a Mac mini's 5.25" optical drive bay. OWC Data Doubler makes it easy to custom design how you want your internal storage to perform. Installed drives are recognized like any other high speed SATA storage device and can be setup and partitioned using the Apple Disk Utility Program.
Just a few of the configuration options you can enjoy with Data Doubler:
  • Combining a new drive with the existing internal drive for one larger volume (SPAN).
  • Combining a new matching drive with existing internal for high-performance RAID-0 Stripe volume.
  • Configuring a new drive as a Time Machine backup drive.
  • Formatting one drive for the Mac OS and the other dedicated for Windows.

You don't have to give up your optical drive completely if you don't want to. You can reuse the original SuperDrive with the OWC Value Line Slim optical drive enclosure for Apple SuperDrive.
This OWC Data Doubler is compatible with...

Rating: 5/5 Worked great and lasted for years August 21, 2017 This kit was easy to install, came with awesome instructions, and has so far extended the life of my mini by over 3 years.

Rating: 5/5 Nice Upgrade November 14, 2016 This is a nice upgrade for people who no longer use cd/dvd drive. I cloned my sys to this drive, It does run a lot faster on normal tasks. The video gave a step by step instruction. I'd say you would want some level of skill operating inside a computer before you take this on, but pro level not necessary, just be organized, methodical and careful.

Rating: 5/5 Data doubler worked like a charm to make my Fusion drive on a Mac Mini August 4, 2016 I had a 2009 mac mini running a hard drive (380gb). I wanted to create a fusion drive (SSD + hard drive). To do that I had to convert the CD rom port with this Data Doubler kit to an SSD drive (480GB). In addition I upgraded the already existing hard drive with a 2 TB hard drive. I updated the OS to El Capitan and went through the process of creating a Fusion drive (2.5TB total). Just finished it yesterday and it works like a charm.

OWC support is always top notch. Before purchasing, I had a chat with an OWC personnel who walked me through the process and recommended the correct parts needed. I can't think of buying mac products anywhere else.

Rating: 5/5 Great product! May 15, 2016 I put this in a Mac Mini3,1 we use as a server for my genealogy hobby and my husband's music business. Love it. Easy install with the OWC video support. We went this route when we discovered there was no replacement available for internal optical drive that had failed after much intense use.

Rating: 5/5 Quality Product As I Always Expect From OWC November 16, 2014 Great Price. Excellent install instructions. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to increase storage on their mini or any other mac that has the data doubler made for it. I bought the mini for a media unit on my TV , kept the original 120GB for system, put an external USB optical drive on it & am using the 1TB for movie & TV show storage. Installation was a breeze. OWC is my one stop shop for my Mac needs (My Mac Pro Tower, Macbook, and Mini have all benefitted from OWC over the years)

Rating: 5/5 More than doubled my computer's processing speed! July 25, 2014 Installing an SSD hard drive was the best thing for my computer's speed. It made the difference in me breaking down and buying a new computer. Not to mention I doubled the capacity of the current hard drive by using the Data Doubler with this hard drive in the optical drive slot of my Mac Mini.
