    -Does daisy chaining via thunderbolt on two external drives increase the read and write speeds?

    -If I was to daisy chain HD1(2TB) with HD2(6TB), both are set to raid 0, will I see this as one or two drives?

    -I want to have WD My Book VelociRaptor Duo 2TB drive as my work drive and WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo 6TB as my backup drive. Both drives will be using thunderbolt. Will daisy chaining these two external drives be any problems?

    It's shared between the drives.

    The same as if they were connected to the directly to the Mac.

    Works just fine.
