    I run a wedding Photo and Video business and I would like to daisy chain my Seagate GoFlex Hard Drives but I have seen a few post saying that those HDs cannot daisy chain due to power consumption.
    I was wondering if anyone could confirm or deny this before I invest any more in Seagate GoFlex HDs.

    What interface will you be using, since "GoFlex" is a series of HDD using USB (2.0 and 3.0), Firewire and Thunderbolt as interface, and only Firewire and Thunderbolt are daisy-chain-able.

    As for power consumption, I could use two 2.5" S-ATA HDDs in a Firewire 800 chain without external power adapters.
