The raid will be for data storage... Not planning media streaming or anything... May not even go to 6tb but its nice to have the option!
That hub isn't available in the UK... Which is typical... But any USB 2 hub should work?? I'll have a dig around my crap as I may have a spare...
Thanks for the tips... Should be enough to get me sorted!!
My thought is that any USB2 hub should work, assuming it provides sufficient power. You could also try using USB2 cables between your new hub and hard disks to see if that helps.
It is possible the USB3 hub you purchased will work connected to a PC in place of any USB2 hub you might already have in use, so swapping might be an option. Also, it may be possible to use the new 3 amp power supply with an older hub to power all four disks, in case the older hub didn't already have sufficient power.
Good luck and please report back when you have a working solution. I think the person who started that other thread would be interested.
