Can I use this with only 1 HDD inside?
Thinking of using this as a Time Machine backup, but with only 1 x 3TB hard drive inside at any one time. Basically, I want to have one backup onsite and one backup offsite, rotated weekly.
Is this possible?
Will the LaCie 2big operate with just 1 HDD inside, or does it always need 2 inside to function?

Yes, but first you will need to use Disk Utility to unformat the RAID, and format the 2big as 2 independent drives inside the chassis. Once you do this, each drive is independent, and you can use 1 or the other, or both independently.
You'll also get the performance of an individual hard drive which will be approx 150-190MB/sec.
