Sony has outfitted the PSZ-RA with preconfigured RAID 0 array technology, which splits data evenly among the hard drives. However, to fit your diverse needs, the PSZ-RA also lets you reconfigure the hard disks in a RAID 1 or JBOD format that either mirror data across the drives or copy data without a sorted structure. Furthermore, the drives come formatted in the exFAT file system, which transfers large files between systems.

Moreover, the PSZ-RA is designed to be an easy to carry portable RAID array that transports data safely with its integrated exterior case and handle. Sony built and tested the PSZ-RA with a rugged, military-grade design that physically protects the drives, so it'd be unlikely for you lose your data from shock, harsh temperatures, or humidity. Protections aside, the PSZ-RA is designed to work across systems seamlessly since it's compatible with Windows and Mac systems.
