Chipset

  • Thunderbolt

Interfaces Supported

  • Thunderbolt

  • USB 3.0 (2.0 Backwards compatible)

Recommended configurations supported

  • RAID 0 – Performance Striping (default setting) for maximum performance(requires two identical hard drives).

  • RAID 1 – One drive mirrors the other for an instant backup(requires two identical hard drives).

  • Span – Combines both drives into a single, large volume.

  • Independent – Use both drives separately.

    * 1) When the enclosure is set to Independent drive mode, only the drive in HDD2 is bootable. 
    2) Independent drive mode is not fully supported by some versions of Mac OS X when connected over Thunderbolt. In Mac OS X 10.8.3 and prior, only HDD2 appears. This is a limitation of of the operating systems' support for the SATA chipset in the Mercury Elite Pro Dual. Independent drive mode does not have the limitation when used over USB.
