Description:
The CEB-2355S is a multifunction storage device designed in a special

MODE:

Dual Mode: 2 HDDs appear on your computer and can be used
/ accessed simultaneously
JBOD Mode: Your computer displays 1 HDD with the capacity
of two HDDs combined
Raid 0 Mode**: This mode involves no redundancy and splits
the files equally into each HDD. The advantage of this mode is
the data transfer speed, but the disadvantage is data might be
damaged if one of the HDDs is defect.
Raid 1 Mode** (mirroring): One HDD has its data duplicated
on another HDD. If either drive fails, the other continues to
function as a single drive and thus provides full redundancy.
SAFE50 Mode*:½ (50%) of the HDD volume is used for
mirroring and the rest is used for Raid 0.
SAFE33 Mode*:1/3 (33%) of the HDD volume is used for
mirroring and the rest is used for Raid 0.
* The SAFE33 & SAFE50 modes only perform when your motherboard
/ PCI card contains Silicon IC
** Some WD (Western Digital) Desktop Edition HDDs do not support
the RAID function. Please check the website below for more
information.

Dual Mode) first and switch it to Raid 1 mode. If you would like to
see the mirroring HDD, you need to switch it to Dual Mode to see
it.
6、 When you use the eSATA connection, if your motherboard does
not either contain Silicon Image IC controller or have the port
multiplier function, it is very important to know that there is only
JBOD mode can be used.
7、 If you would like to switch from Raid 0/Raid 1/Safe 33/Safe 50 to
the other mode, please make sure to remove the old partition first

HDDs is 3TB. If the capacity exceeds this limit, the HDDs will not
function. (Please check the official Windows website for detailed
information)
