If I use two of these as a concatenated raid drive (Mac OS10.14.6), would I get a lower speed than when using a single drive?
Asked by: Elliott
In general RAID speeds can be faster than single drive speeds, but that is dependent on the level of RAID used and the interface type/bandwidth.

I'm wanting HDs to use as permanent storage to backup large photos files. Is this a good solution as a HD backup system?
Asked by: MIKKI
The WD 4TB My Passport SSD USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C Portable SSD (Gray) can be used for backing up photos, but for permanent storage, I would recommend a NAS solution like the Synology 8TB DiskStation DS223 2-Bay NAS Enclosure Kit with Seagate IronWolf NAS Drives (2 x 4TB) (B&H # SYDS2238TBK, https://bhpho.to/3V8fQd3), as the photos will be backed up in case a drive fails, and you can also upgrade the storage later on if you need more.
