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.

Everything you need for the job. It's all top quality equipment, especially the star of the show - the bracket itself. Installation was surprisingly straightforward and took less time than expected thanks to the handy linked video. Very satisfied with the product, shipping and customer service.
