LaCie RAID Shuttle External HDD Overview

Designed for film sets, photo shoots, and music studios, the 8TB Rugged RAID Shuttle USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C External Hard Drive from LaCie lets you capture and transport data in the field, thanks to rain, dust, and crush resistance, as well as a drop resistance up to 4'. To better accommodate working in the field, the Rugged RAID Shuttle is both wide and flat to fit into bags and envelopes, and also features hardware encryption with password protection. With hardware encryption, no additional encryption software is needed to keep your data confidential.

LaCie's 8TB Rugged RAID Shuttle features a storage capacity of 8TB that is split over two 4TB hard drives, which support hardware RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 0 will stripe both drives together to deliver fast read and write speeds, while RAID 1 will mirror the contents of one drive to the other to create a 1:1 backup copy of your data. While RAID 0 delivers better performance, there is no data redundancy, so if your drive fails, everything will be lost. If you're thinking about using RAID 1 for its data redundancy, this comes at the cost of drive performance. RAID 1 will also reduce the capacity of your drive by half since it uses one of the drives for redundancy. So, under RAID 1, you'll only have 4TB of usable space.

Compatible with Windows 7 and later or macOS 10.10 and later, the Rugged RAID Shuttle has a 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C interface, which is also known as USB 3.2 Gen 2 or USB 3.1, and delivers speeds of up to 250 MB/s. The USB Type-C interface may also be used with Thunderbolt 3 hosts and other USB generations, such as USB 3.2/3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) and USB 2.0, and power is provided using bus power from the corresponding interface. If you computer's bus-powered port does not provide enough power, a power adapter is provided. Included is a USB Type-C to Type-C cable. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year Rescue Data Recovery Services plan and also included is a 1-month membership to the Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan.

Note: The Adobe Creative Cloud membership must be redeemed by January 31, 2020, during product registration. A network connection and an Adobe ID are required. Available only to users 13 and older. Not available in all countries. See Adobe's site for more info.

Does this require wall power or is it bus powered? The photos and description are confusing.
Asked by: Jarrell
I've got a 2015 15" MacBook Pro which has Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3 ports. I understand that I cannot get bus power using the supplied USB-A to USB-C adaptor. But, would I be able to get bus power using the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adaptor?

For archiving, would you buy one of these and use in RAID 0 (for maximum size) or an 8TB desktop-size drive (losing the benefit of portability and encryption) ?
Asked by: Matthew
As an alternative, would using in RAID-1 be a secure and portable solution for archiving equal to a desktop drive such as a 2-Big 8TB (4TB per drive)? I view not needing an external power supply as a plus, no?

Should I use software encryption with this product?
Asked by: Clement
No additional encryption software required, since the Rugged RAID Shuttle already self-encrypts its data in real time and it offers password protection with its LaCie Toolkit utility. Actually, any additional encryption technology might impact the performance of the product

Is it safe to use this as a backup drive? For example, a portable, storable version of the desktop LaCie 2Big? Thinking for longterm storage.

This drive is safe but I always suggest to get two drives as a back up because mechanical drives can never be reliable.
