Shuffling disks within OWC Thunderbay enclosures

New Member

I have three Thunderbay enclosures that I have used to create Raid5 volumes using 4 drives. One of those enclosures is older, with thunderbolt 2 connector, and I'd like to relocate the 4 drives in that to one of the enclosures with USB-C. Am I able to simply move the drives, and SoftRAID will find them again?

Yes, there is no RAID specific information on either the system, or enclosure, so you can move drives to any new enclosure.

Get a Thunderbolt 3 enclosure, (same connector), don't try to save money by going to USB.

@softraid-support Thanks for the reply. Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C cable, so yeah...
