Two Disks in One for Storage and Protection
The LaCie 2big Quadra has been developed for professionals who expect high speed and large capacities from a storage and backup device. Offering amazing transfer speeds through eSATA 3Gb/s and FireWire 800, the 2big Quadra also comes with FireWire 400 and USB 3.0 for universal connectivity to Mac and PC. As a complete two-bay solution, it features four RAID modes to customize speed and protection, and comes with advanced backup software with a computer recovery option.

Customizable RAID Protection
Featuring four RAID modes, the LaCie 2big Quadra lets users easily customize RAID speed and protection levels. In RAID 1, it offers full data protection for library archiving and backup, with hot-swappable disks for non-stop data access - even during maintenance. A convenient Mixed Partition mode enables creative professionals to work on "daily" data in a RAID 0 partition and to get another RAID 1 partition for backup and protect sensitive data. Extra spare disks are also available as an option for immediate replacement.

RAID Performance for Creative Pros
Taking advantage of a native controller that preserves computer resources, the LaCie 2big Quadra reaches large capacity and an impressive speed of 165MB/s in RAID 0 through eSATA 3Gb/s. These performances are ideal for creative professionals that need to work with applications that demand high speeds, such as 3D imaging programs or even with audio/video post-production software with multiple SD and HD streams. It's even possible to daisy-chain FireWire or an iLink DV camera through FireWire.

Backup, Restore, and Recover
With the LaCie Shortcut Button it's easy to launch applications like Genie Backup Manager Pro for Windows or Intego Backup Manager Pro for Mac, both of which come with the LaCie 2big Quadra. This software lets you reliably and efficiently back up your documents, emails, settings, or other digital assets. With its ease of use, you can schedule and customize the type of backup you create. The Genie and Intego programs are ideal for creative professionals, and users can easily find previous versions of their documents and restore them. With computer recovery options, users will be able to restore their configuration and to go right back to work in the event of a disaster with their workstation. It's easy to back up directly from your Mac with the native solution, since the 2big Quadra is compatible with Time Machine.

Reliable Cooling System and Power Savings
The LaCie 2big Quadra's fully aluminum, sturdy heat sink design provides 60% more surface area, which naturally draws heat away from the internal components, keeping it cool and safe at all times. It also offers Triple Power Management with a manual switch: "Auto" for energy efficiency; "On" for instant access; or "Off" for data protection.

Cable management Comments : * Adapter cable (sold separately from required. File speeds limited to FireWire 400 speeds. ** Maximum interface transfer rate = theoretical bus bandwidth, whereas burst transfer rate = maximum drive speed. Tests conducted in RAID0 with 3TB hard disks. Speeds depend temp-on the RAID mode selected, and average transfer rates vary from temp-one computer to another and from temp-one drive to another. ^ Windows XP 32-bit does not support volumes with capacities exceeding 2TB. 1TB (Terabyte) -$2= 1000GB. 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less).
