I hope there is someone kind enough to explain some things regarding the G-Raid with Thunderbolt 3. I am in haste since I have a very short time window for ordering these drives online in a foreign country.
The situation is as it follows:
Have an iMac and MBP with Thunderbolt 2. Wish to buy G-RAID with Thunderbolt 3 8Tb, two of them. Wish to use one drive in Raid 0 for maximum speed and the other one to daisy chain to the first one and use it as a backup of the first one.
- Will I be able to use TB3 on TB2 machines, and if yes, how so?
- Will I need Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter.
- In case I connect the first drive with my iMac via USB-C to USB-A supplied cable and I daisy chain the second drive to the first via TB3, will this setup allow me to use the drives as said before, one as RAID 0 and the other one as a backup of it?
Hoping that I was clear enough, I thank you so very much for your time.
