    Hi guys,

    Not sure if this is possible...

    If I buy the following esata card
    http://www.sonnettech.com/product/tempo_sata_e2p.html

    And the following esata external caddy.

    http://www.span.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=19_1302_1329&products_id=8519

    Could i run the hdd's as Raid1? using os x's in build raid software.
    I can see the caddy has a sata connection per drive, so really I'm just externally adding interior disks in a way.

    Do you think it'd work?

    What do you think? I'm not sure if the fact it's external will screw up raid (maybe not power the drives on at the same time or something....)
