I bought a My Book Duo 12TB. As I understand it, it’s hardware encrypted, and this will cause the disks not to be readable if transplanted into another enclosure, which seems odd since the whole point of having RAID 1 acknowledges that hardware components fail, and the enclosure is not somehow immune to that. I have several questions about that.
- This means I don’t have to use HFS encryption I suppose. The hard disks are always encrypted?
- What if someone steals my entire My Book Duo? How do I prevent access to it? My other external drives are using encrypted HFS; a thief would need to know the key.
- What if the enclosure dies? Does that mean my HDD’s aren’t readable from another enclosure?
- Is there a way to obtain/set the keys so the encryption can be configured by me?
