Includes everything needed to replace your optical drive with a second hard drive or SSD
Boost your storage capacity by adding up to an additional 2.0TB of internal storage with a second hard drive, or enjoy near-instantaneous boot and app loading times by adding a Solid State Drive (SSD).
Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your 2009-2011 iMac's internal SuperDrive with an OWC Data Doubler with a hard drive or SSD. The custom-engineered Data Doubler bracket comes ready to mount any 2.5" SATA drive up to 12.5mm in height.
Once you've installed the entire Data Doubler drive assembly into your 2009-2011 iMac's optical drive bay, you can customize how you want your internal storage to perform. Drive customization is easy and built right into OS X as the new Data Doubler mounted drive can be setup using Apple's Disk Utility program in which you can format the drive, create a RAID array using two drives together, or partition the new drive. Once formatted you can also setup the second drive as a Time Machine backup so you can take your backup with your wherever you go.
OWC provides free installation videos that guide this DIY upgrade step-by-step for each specific Mac model. Data Doubler also comes backed by OWC's award-winning U.S.A. based technical support team which is readily available to assist you with your upgrade should you have any questions.
Supports: SATA 6Gb/s, 3Gb/s & 1.5Gb/s Interface 2.5" Drive or SSD (Solid State Drive) of up to 12.5mm height.
*Professional installation of Data Doubler into an iMac is highly recommended due to the degree of installation difficulty.
