    How big is your library?

    As configured by LaCie each 2big appears as a single volume. The two dirves inside the 2big are striped into a single RAID-0 volume.

    If you have an iTunes library larger than 6TB (I doubt it), you could daisy chain several drives and use Disk Utility to join multiple drives on the chain into one larger RAID volume.

    I encourage you to review the capabilities of Disk Utility and iTunes carefully. You would take this action if and only if you had a huge iTunes library exceeding 6TB in size.

    Note well: if you have multiple drives daisy chained and joined into one RAID-0 volume, you can lose data and your library will be unavailable if only one drive is disconnected or missing.
