If the HDs in a JBOD enclosure can show up on your desktop as individual drives .... why can't they be written to and accessed individually ?
Please help me understand exactly how JBOD works. I have a mac mini, and an iMac. I have 2 external HDs connected to the mini, and 2 external HDs connected to my iMac. Thats 4 separate enclosures, 4 separate power bricks, and 4 plugs. In a 4 bay JBOD enclosure can I access each HD separately ? Could I backup HD 1 to HD 2 and separately backup HD 3 to HD 4 ? Would I be able to use software like Superduper to backup 1 to2 and 3 to 4 ? Anyones help is greatly appreciated.
