Formatting and Partitioning
The OWC Drive Guide software was used to partition the unit initially as an experience test.
The software is a friendly “wizard” that for most users will be a welcome way to initialize the unit, including such tasks as setting up a dual-partition (dual volume) configuration for clones a Boot and Master drive, e.g., cloning as a backup strategy. Or of course, a “master” volume or volumes.
The wizard utilizes Apple routines to do its work, so it is 100% same end result as using Apple’s Disk Utility.
Later I erased for another series of tests; show below is Apple’s DiskUtility view of the unit in a 6TB (2 X 3TB) RAID-0 stripe configuration.
View as: RAID-0 stripe, RAID-1 mirror, independent drives.
