I already have an 8tb mini stack. Can two mini stacks be connected and work together. Or, would they need to run independently?
Asked by: Joseph E.
In theory you can use SoftRAID to create a RAID 0 or RAID 1 volume, but you will take performance hits since they are not in a single enclosure.

question

I see a DC power port, can these drives be bus powered through the USB3 connection?
Asked by: Clark F.
Sorry, no. They require much more power than what a USB 3.0 port can provide.
