The Stardom ST2 is a great, robust drive enclosure that can take 2 SATA drives at the same time. Two drives mount on the desktop making ideal for archiving files so that they can be stored in two different locations.
On the other hand it can also be set to RAID 0 so that 2 hard drives are then striped together to form one larger volume. This makes it ideal for a large capacity backup device that can be used with Time Machine (in Mac OS X 10.5 and above)
Stylish and rugged the ST2 has a sleek exterior design that will never go out of style when placed next to your Mac. It's also built tough with three millimeter thickness aluminum to shield the enclosed drives durably and to dissipate the heat created by the drives faster so that the drives can work comfortably.

Optional RAID 0 or Independent storage mode
With two optional storage modes, a user can choose between RAID 0 or the Independent mode. In RAID 0 mode, the enclosed two drives will be striped or combined into one large volume for storage to enhance the data transfer speed performance. Under the Independent mode, the enclosed drives are seen as two separate volumes instead of one single volume.
