4TB Hard Drives?
Sep 30, 2012

For backup, I'm thinking of using a 4TB Hitachi hard drive (£180) in a Voyager Q dock (£70) - connected to a Mac mini with FW800.

I'm backing up an archive of just over 2TB (and growing) that resides on a Promise Pegasus (RAID 5) connected to the mini with Thunderbolt.

Has anyone done this? - 4TB drives seems much less common that 2TB and 3TB drives.

(Newer Tech have told me that my old Voyager Q won't address hard drives bigger than 2TB, so I'll have to buy their latest version for 3 or 4TB drives.)
