For added convenience, the drives are user-serviceable and the system comes with the WD Drives Utilities software. A Thunderbolt cable is included so you can immediately start operating this storage-system.

Move Data at Unprecedented Speeds
Video editors and other digital media professionals can do more work in less time thanks to the data transfer speed of the Thunderbolt ports on WD's My Book Thunderbolt Duo. It offers the fastest way to get information to and from your external drive
User-Selectable RAID or JBOD Modes
With the My Book Thunderbolt Duo, you can choose between RAID 0 (striping), RAID 1 (mirroring) and JBOD. RAID 0 offers the performance you need when designing or editing time-sensitive graphic-intensive media files. RAID 1 provides safer data protection by automatically generating a duplicate copy of your data. JBOD allows you to use this dual-drive storage system as two individual drives and select between HFS+J or ExFAT per disk. It's ideal for running Windows OS on a Mac
Dual Thunderbolt Ports
Daisy chain multiple devices or peripherals such as HD displays, media players, HD media capture and editing systems using the two Thunderbolt ports, if you want to maximize your workflow efficiency and productivity
High-Speed Multitasking
The bidirectional Thunderbolt technology delivers heightened speed for multitasking while video editing, 3D rendering and completing other graphics intensive projects
User-Serviceable
To replace a drive, just open the case and exchange the existing drive - no tools needed. If you fill up a drive, you can remove it and replace it with a fresh drive and begin saving even more of your work
WD Drives Utilities
Register your drive, run diagnostics, manage RAID or JBOD modes and more using WD Drive Utilities

          Comments about WD 6TB My Thunderbolt Duo Dual-Drive Storage System:

          I am using an Avid HD interface with ProTools 11, Native Thunderbolt, with my Apple Macbook pro with Thunderbolt technology in my studio. I use it to record my band, Madame Rô. This brought an upgrade to the sound recorded, The HD is fast, reliable. At the store, the sale man said, 6Tb it's a lot of space. I said that I will use with sound and high definition video (the clips of the band). Next year I'll probably buy another.

            My Thunderbolt Duo Drive is connected to an iMac 27". I'm using the JBOD configuration; each 3 TB drive run independently. Drive A is used for daily operations: mainly photo and video storage. Drive B is used strictly for Time Machine backup. Backup routine via Thunderbolt connexion is much faster than before (Ethernet connexion to Time Capsule).

              We have 4 of these drives, had an issue with 1 of the hard drives, but because of the built in redundancy (we use Raid-1 mirror settings) it resolved quickly enough.

              I bought two of these drives for use on a feature films DIT department. they work wonderfully. No hard drive failures even with repeated use and abuse. I'm expecially happy about the price of these thunderbolt drives. They where the cheapest on the market but they don't feel cheap. An excellent buy for sure.
