When you connect two drives to the device, you have the option of having them "mirrored" or spanned. Mirrored storage lets you keep two copies of every file, one on each drive, so that everything is backed up in case of drive failure. When two drives are set to span, they appear as one volume so they are easy to work with and the device will automatically find your data across both drives. Excellent Value and Easy Setup. This allows for considerable cost savings.
Opening up the SC101 only requires turning a latch that can be done with a quarter; no tools are needed. Attach the power connectors and IDE cables, set the jumpers, and slide the drive into place, and that's it.
After the hard drives are installed, plug the device in, attach it to the network, and install the included software. The software guides you through setup step by step.
When everything is ready to go, it looks like a new hard drive has been installed on your PC and you use it just as you would any other hard drive. Backup software is included for users who don't already have their own preferred software. Please note that the SC101 is only compatible with Windows machines and won't work with Macs or Linux. The NETGEAR SC101 Storage Central is an expandable storage system that allows shared access by all computers on your network.
With space for two IDE hard drives, you can set the device up to mirror each other so you have a backup of all your files in case either one fails. GREAT FOR HOME OR OFFICE OR BUSINESS USE.
