Background: I'm moving from a MacPro workstation that has 4 internal drives. These are independent and I use Carbon Clone backup software. So...Drive 1: Mac OS, Drive 2: Mac OS Backup, Drive 3: my files, Drive 4: Back up of Drive 3. And yes, a large partitioned external for offsite backup. 3...2...1 plan.
I'm moving to a Macbook Pro 16" M1 Max with a 2TB SSD. I need an enclosure to mimic what I'm already doing (4 separate HDs).
I bought the Mediasonic 4 bay RAID enclosure last week and thinking I made an error since I can't run the drives independently. I could - if need be - run a RAID 1 so that drives 1&2 are mirrored, 3&4 are mirrored.
But I would prefer to keep them separate and continue using Carbon Clone. I’m not a fan of mirrored drives since - if you make a mistake with files that mistake is instantly copied.
I’m a photographer who works with tech daily and could use advise on this particular quandary.
Greetings. Which model of Mediasonic bay do you have currently?
mediasonic Proraid: USB 3.0 RAID 4-bay raid enclosure
I'm not too well versed on this myself personally, perhaps another member here will have some insight for you.
If you'd like, I can set up a request to send your information over to your nearest store to have a sales associate get in contact with you with more information on recommendations.
Yes. Please ask Denver rep to contact me.
Really pretty tweaked about trying to ask a simple question. Calling the Denver store tells me to go online and hangs up on me. Expected more from Micro Center.
Hello, I'll send you an email so we can collect your contact information to send over. Thank you.
Discontinue this thread. Item returned. Never should have been this difficult to speak with someone at Microcenter.
