Performance and capacity

With up to 16 TB of capacity and enhanced features that maximize system performance, these drives allow you to spend more time doing what you love most and less time waiting.

Advanced connectivity

Get up to 20 Gb/s data-transfer rate with Thunderbolt 2 technology and daisy chain up to six additional Thunderbolt devices with no impact on throughput speed. Whether you have two 4K monitors on your workstation, additional storage devices, tablets and cameras they all can be connected at the same time.

Hardware RAID

Because RAID processing is handled by the My Book Pro device, data bottlenecks are reduced and throughput is improved with no impact to your computer's CPU performance.

Customizable configuration options:

  • RAID 0 (Default) - Stripes your data across both drives. This provides the very best performance with increased throughput and standard security.
  • RAID 1 - Saves half the capacity to write a duplicate copy of your files on the second drive for increased protection of your data.
  • JBOD - Allows your computer to view and use the two drives as separate volumes
