Ask Max: Is a 2006 Mac Pro limited to 500GB storage per drive bay?

Asked on 06/02/2010:


Looking to add more hard drive capacity to my 2006 Mac Pro. I've heard I might be limited to 500GB in each bay for a total of 2 TBs. Is that true or is more possible? Also, any brand recommendations would be appreciated. Currently it runs off the base 250GB SATA.

Hi Nancy,

There is no drive size limit for SATA based Macs, like yours. You should be fine going up to 2TB in each drive bay. Take a look at our internal hard drives, as we carry both Western Digital & MCE. These brands will certainly fit the bill for your storage needs.
