LaCie RAID Shuttle External HDD Overview

Designed for film sets, photo shoots and music studios, the 8TB Rugged RAID Shuttle USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C External Hard Drive from LaCie lets you capture and transport data in the field with peace of mind. It is rain, dust and crush resistant, as well as drop resistant up to 4'. To make it easier to work in the field, the Rugged RAID Shuttle is both wide and flat to fit into bags and envelopes. Plus, it features hardware encryption with password protection, so no additional encryption software is needed to keep your data confidential.

LaCie's 8TB Rugged RAID Shuttle features a storage capacity of 8TB that is split over two 4TB hard drives, which support hardware RAID 0 and RAID 1. RAID 0 will stripe both drives together to deliver fast read and write speeds, while RAID 1 will mirror the contents of one drive to the other to create a 1:1 backup copy of your data. While RAID 0 delivers better performance, there is no data redundancy, so if your drive fails, everything will be lost. If you're thinking about using RAID 1 for its data redundancy, this comes at the cost of drive performance. RAID 1 will also reduce the capacity of your drive by half since it uses one of the drives for redundancy. So, under RAID 1, you'll only have 4TB of usable space.

Compatible with Windows 7 and later or macOS 10.10 and later, the Rugged RAID Shuttle has a 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C interface, which is also known as USB 3.2 Gen 2 or USB 3.1, and delivers speeds of up to 250 MB/s. The USB Type-C interface may also be used with Thunderbolt 3 hosts and other USB generations, such as USB 3.2/3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) and USB 2.0, and power is provided using bus power from the corresponding interface. If you computer's bus-powered port does not provide enough power, a power adapter is provided. Included is a USB Type-C to Type-C cable.
