connect thunder cable from MBP to thunder port, use 2TB as my MBP backup. Also I want to connect thunder cable from 27" iMac to the 2nd thunder port?
So as you helpful people have just read what I would like to do is have this 4TB hard drive as the back up for both my MBP and my 27". There is 2 thunder ports and I could set it up so MBP takes one of the 2 hard drives and the 27" desktop iMac uses the other 2TB hard drive.
Would this work?
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could achieve my goal.
Basically my mid 2012 MBP will have all my junk on it, personal stuff and important stuff too that I will want on the new 27" iMac when I get home. So basically the MBP is a throw around Mac and the stunning 27" is a awesome setup, all wireless sonos with digital amp and a Focal 2.1 high end wireless sound system plus wireless printer and all the pads and phones etc...
So the MBP could break and I would be deco. If the new 27" imac broke I would prob walk onto on coming traffic....
Please help and thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Does this product come with internal fans to keep the hard drives cool, and if so, how quiet are they?
I've tried a number of different external hard drive enclosures and products, and been disappointed when they say they are 'whisper quiet' but actually are quite loud, especially in a very quiet room.

can the 7200rpm hard drives be replaced with ssd's and made to work in a raid config ?
with the street prices of ssd's falling, I was just wondering if it's possible to have ssd's in place of the hard drives (once they are full) and get them working in a raid 0 config ?

Are the sub-drives regular 3.5 SATA drives? Is it strictly necessary to buy LaCie replacements in case of failure?
The LaCie website tells you to, but they naturally would prefer all your $ went to them.

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?

Use as 2 different drives and use one drive to take time machine backup of the the other drive?
Can i use the 2 drives as a separate drives instead of raid 0 & use one drive as time machine drive to backup other drive? Is this better than using both drive as striped RAID1? I assume this will have better performance as the time machine is not writing the same data to different drives at the same time unlike the raid 1 where the same stuff is written on to 2 different drives.
Can somebody tell me if this is a better option when compared to raid 1?
