ToughTech Duo C
First bus-powered two-drive storage for the USB 3.1/Type-C MacBook Pro
Drive Types Supported - SATA 2.5" drives (up to 9.5mm height) / SATA SSD (solid state drives)
Insertion Rating up to 50,000 drive insertions
Dimensions 3.50" x 6.26" x 1.34" (89mm x 159mm x 34mm)
The first and only device of its kind, the CRU® ToughTech® Duo C is the perfect companion for the new MacBook Pro, with its 10 Gbps USB 3.1 Gen2/Type-C connectivity.
The dual-drive (SSD or notebook hard drive) Duo C fits in your hand and can be configured
to create two copies of data at once (RAID 1 mode),
to appear as two separate drives (JBOD mode),
or as a single large drive (RAID 0 or SPAN modes).
With the right computer and drives, you can power the Duo C without an AC adapter (we call this "bus power"). At this time, we recommend only purchasing the Duo C for Apple Mac computers, and if bus powering is your requirement, you will need the new MacBook Pro (announced by Apple on October 27, 2016). Duo C is fully compatible with other Macs, but will require use of the included AC adapter.
Duo C is also compatible with some Windows PCs, depending on factors such as Windows version, host chipset, drives, and cables. CRU is still testing various scenarios and will officially support Windows once we identify specific compatible configurations.
Photographers, musicians, and others who need convenient access to their work rely on CRU® ToughTech® storage devices for safe, secure backup of their images, recording sessions, and other important data. The rugged portability and versatility of the ToughTech Duo C is perfect for storing data on the set, on the stage, or in the office.
To send data to clients or for additional storage space, swap out the current drives and put new ones into the enclosure. You won’t need any tools, and by using CRU DriveBox mini storage cases, you can eliminate closet clutter.
Works with USB 3.1/3.0/2.0 (bus power only available with USB 3.1 Gen 2)
Works with Thunderbolt 3 ports, which support USB 3.1 protocol and bus power
Use with any capacity 2.5-inch SATA SSDs or hard drives
