  • Acres of storage: Whether you're recording an artist or editing high-resolution footage, the massive 12TB capacity provides more than enough storage room for your photos, videos, and audio files.
  • Advanced connectivity: Featuring dual 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 ports and USB 3.0 compatibility, this external drive ensures lightning-fast file transfers so you can store and back up all your work in a heartbeat.

  • Keep portable devices powered: Charge and sync your smartphones, tablets, and cameras on the fly with the handy front-access USB ports.
  • Thunderbolt technology: Multitask at maximum speed without the need for a hub or switch. Thunderbolt technology provides single-cable convenience by allowing you to daisy chain up to 6 Thunderbolt 2 devices, including external hard drives, media players, 4K monitors, editing systems, and more.
  • Hardware RAID: RAID processing is managed by the My Book Pro to minimize data bottlenecks and improve throughput with no impact to your computer's CPU performance.
  • Customizable configuration options: The RAID 0 default option stripes your data across both drives to deliver exceptional performance with increased throughput, while RAID 1 saves half the space to create a duplicate copy of your files to provide extra data protection. Pick the JBOD option if you want your computer to view and use the 2 drives as separate volumes.
  • Works with Apple Time Machine: Use OS X to automatically back up all your files hourly, daily, and weekly.
  • Effortless setup: Use the My Book Pro right out of the box. It comes preformatted for Max OS X but can be reformatted for Windows if necessary.
