question

My Mac has thunderbolt I instead of thunderbolt II, so I would need to use USB 3.0 to connect to my Mac. My question is: When connected via USB 3.0, can I daisy chain 2 or more of these docks using the thunderbolt connections between them ?? If it works, I assume my transfer speed would be limited by the USB 3.0 connection, which would be OK compared to upgrading to a new computer with thunderbolt 2. Thanks for the help.
Asked by: JAMES
The difference in speed between USB3 and thunderbolt 2 is not large in fact. This station connected the thunderbolt station 2. all is working well. USB3 ports work with other stations drives. Speed ports are independent from each other. if I understand correctly your question. Mac Pro Late 2013.
