Can two Seagate 8TB HD be stacked?

Can two Seagate 8TB HD be stacked?
Asked by: Sue
You mean stacked physically? I suppose so, but it wouldn't be the sturdiest arrangement. There are tiny feet on the bottom for air circulation (the only actual venting on the case) but these units can get a little warm during constant / heavy use. There are no feet on the sides of the case, but you could probably orient them like that if you felt the need. Now, if you meant stacked as in USB daisy-chained, absolutely. If you meant stacked as in RAID striped, your OS / software would need to support this and you'd need the actual internal drives to be as close to identical as possible.

So is this Seagate 5TB Backup Plus Portable Hard Drive MAC compatible or not? I've had success with the Seagate 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB backup plus portable hard drives in the past and was on the verge of purchasing this 5TB version but am now hesitant after viewing several extremely negative reviews . . .
Asked by: Clifford
Yes, the drive is fully compatible. You can format it for Mac (HSF+) or for Windows (NTFS) or use a formatting which is good for both (e.g. exFAT). If you just work with Macs, open Disk Utility and format your drive there.

can this backup drive work with usb 2?
Asked by: clive
YES … it's just slower AND make sure you format the "new" unit before you start archiving to it. I did not and after a few weeks it would not read my files. After I formatted the drive everything has been fine for about three years.

Is there any difference between this drive and the STEL8000100, other than one being formatted for MacOS and the other for Windows?
Asked by: Nicholas
This hard drive will work with Time Machine and with a PC with a HFS+ driver for compatibility. MFR # STEL8000100 will come formatted for a PC and it will come with a NTFS driver, for a Mac system. Besides that, the other difference is the color of the hard drive case.
