LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 4 LACIE 5BIG THUNDERBOLT 2: ADVANCED STORAGE TECHNOLOGY THUNDERBOLT 2 TECHNOLOGY The LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 uses Thunderbolt 2 technology, the fastest, most versatile connection for your computer. While first generation Thunderbolt technology transfer rates are 10Gb/s bi-directional, Thunderbolt 2 technology provides 20Gb/s bi-directional. Additionally, Thunderbolt 2 technology gives priority to the video stream, apportioning the required bandwidth for playback. This is a critical advantage when working with high-end video and 3D graphics. For example, a film editor is working with two streams, 4K video at 12Gb/s and data at 4Gb/s. Whereas first generation Thunderbolt technology may experience difficulty with the video signal, Thunderbolt 2 technology allows it to pass without a problem, dividing the bandwidth as needed for playback. Important cable info: When connecting your Thunderbolt 2 enclosure to a computer or compatible devices, use cables specifically constructed to support Thunderbolt technology. Important info: A Thunderbolt enclosure must be connected to a computer that supports Thunderbolt technology. While the ports on the back of the device can easily seat Mini DisplayPort cable ends for daisy chaining displays, the Thunderbolt storage will only work when connected to a computer that supports Thunderbolt technology.

Page: 22
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 23 Important info: LaCie does not recommend applying a long push to power off the enclosure. See the note for long push below. Short push Important info: Always eject the LaCie 5big volumes from your computer before applying a short push. A short push is a manual depression on the LED power button that lasts no longer than one second. When the product is operating, a short push will spin down the hard drives within the enclosure. The Thunderbolt 2 ports remain active and are available for daisy chaining. This is called idle mode. For example, a display that is daisy chained with the LaCie 5big will remain available to the computer following a short push. Short push and RAID synchronization Applying a short push during RAID synchronization will spin the hard drives down. The RAID synchronization will continue the next time you spin the hard drives up via a short push. Long push A long push is a manual depression on the button that lasts more than four seconds. When the product is operating, a long push will cut the power from the LaCie 5big, forcing it to shut down immediately. A long push is not recommended as it may result in data loss. Removing the Thunderbolt cable during operation It is highly recommended that users keep the Thunderbolt cable connection between the computer and the LaCie 5big during operation. Removing the cable during operation can have serious consequences, such as lost data. If the cable is removed while the system is synchronizing the RAID, the synchronization will continue but you will lose connection with the computer and your data. QUIET OPERATION AND HEAT MANAGEMENT To reduce noise during operation, the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 uses a Noctua® cooling fan to pull heat away from the internal components. In addition to being exceptionally quiet, the Noctua cooling fan is temperature controlled, which guarantees optimal heat management by adjusting the rotational speed for the environment. Additionally, the LaCie 5big enclosure's metal casing dissipates heat from the hard drives, keeping them safe and prolonging their life. Since LaCie's unique design draws heat away from the internal hard drives, the external casing will be warm to the touch after extended use. Important info: The LaCie 5big’s wide exhaust chamber on the rear of the device allows for enhanced airflow. Make sure that it is not obstructed and that there is a natural airflow across the casing.
Page: 23
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 24 POSITION AND STACKING Always make certain to place the LaCie 5big on a flat, even surface designed to support the heat output and airflow of a professional hard disk enclosure. For proper heat dissipation, the LaCie 5big is designed to stand on its rubber feet, situated on the bottom of the enclosure. DO NOT place the enclosure on its side when it is powered on. When using multiple enclosures, you can stack one LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 on top of another LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2. However, due to the weight and balance of the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2, stacking more than two enclosures poses a severe risk that the devices will fall. DO NOT stack other hard drives, enclosures, or equipment on top of the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2. The warranty for your LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 will be voided if you: Stack more than two LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 enclosures. ■ Stack other hard drives, enclosures, or equipment on top of the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2. ■

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 25 DAISY CHAIN Use the enclosure's two Thunderbolt 2 technology ports for: Direct connection to a computer that is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 technology or first generation ■ Thunderbolt technology. Daisy chaining with devices and displays that are compatible with Thunderbolt 2 technology and first ■ generation Thunderbolt technology DAISY CHAIN: THUNDERBOLT 2 TECHNOLOGY AND FIRST GENERATION THUNDERBOLT TECHNOLOGY Thunderbolt 2 technology is an update of first generation Thunderbolt technology. While Thunderbolt technology continues to provide impressive transfer rates of up to 10Gb/s bi-directional, Thunderbolt 2 technology offers improved performance with a potential of up to 20Gb/s bi-directional. Thunderbolt 2 technology also gives you greater flexibility when using video and data, assigning greater throughput to the stream that carries the heavier load. You must have a computer that supports Thunderbolt 2 technology to take advantage of the updates in performance and the intelligent sharing of bandwidth. Similar to first generation Thunderbolt technology, a single Thunderbolt 2 technology daisy chain can have up to seven devices, including the computer. For example, you can daisy chain five LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 enclosures on the same line with a display. Provided that your computer supports Thunderbolt 2 technology, transfer rates have the potential to reach up to 20Gb/s bi-directional for all devices. You can also add the LaCie 5big to a daisy chain that includes first generation Thunderbolt technology devices. For example, your computer supports Thunderbolt 2 technology and you add the LaCie 5big to a daisy chain that includes three first generation Thunderbolt technology storage devices and a monitor with a MiniDisplay port. In such a case, make certain that the LaCie 5big is the first enclosure connected to the computer. You can lose the higher performance offered by Thunderbolt 2 technology if a Thunderbolt 2 device is daisy-chained behind first generation Thunderbolt devices and/or displays.
Page: 25
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 26 How to daisy chain Connect the cable to one of the interface ports on the back of the LaCie 5big and to your computer. The additional port may be used to daisy chain compatible first generation Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 peripherals, such as hard drives and monitors. If you have another Thunderbolt 2 storage device, make certain to connect it to the LaCie 5big before adding first generation Thunderbolt technology devices and/or displays. Important cable info: When connecting your enclosure to a computer or compatible devices, use cables specifically constructed to support Thunderbolt technology. Thunderbolt technology cables are compatible with Thunderbolt 2 technology devices and first generation Thunderbolt technology devices. Important info: To reach Thunderbolt 2 technology transfer rates up to 20Gb/s bi-directional, the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 must be connected to a computer that supports Thunderbolt 2 technology. Connecting the LaCie 5big to a computer that supports first generation Thunderbolt technology allows for transfer rates up to 10Gb/s bi-directional. Daisy chain: idle mode You can daisy chain Thunderbolt 2 technology and first generation Thunderbolt technology devices even when the LaCie 5big hard drives are spun down. Apply a short push on the LED power button (see Operation). The status LED will blink slowly, indicating that the LaCie 5big is in idle mode.

Page: 27
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 28 RAID The information below provides a basic guide to the RAID modes available to the LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2. Note that the levels of performance and protection will differ based upon the number of hard drives in a volume. For instructions on how to configure RAID, see the LaCie RAID Manager User Manual. RAID EXAMPLE The level of RAID is contingent upon the amount of disks. For example, a volume with four disks supports all levels of RAID except RAID 1, which is not compatible with volumes greater than two disks. When making comparisons in a volume with four disks, RAID 0 appears to be the best choice since it offers 100% storage capacity and high performance. However, RAID 0’s major weakness is a lack of data protection in case of hard drive failure. Further, its performance is not much greater than RAID 5, which includes data protection in case one hard drive should fail. RAID 6 and, in unique cases, RAID 10, can provide data protection in the event that two hard drives fail. RAID LEVELS Review the summaries of each RAID before selecting your configuration for the LaCie 5big storage. RAID mode Minimum hard drives RAID 0 2 RAID 1 2 RAID 5 3 RAID 6 4 RAID 10 4
Page: 28
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 29 RAID 0 RAID 0 is the fastest RAID mode since it writes data across all of the volume's hard drives. Further, the capacities of each disk are added together for optimal data storage. However, RAID 0 lacks a very important feature: data protection. If one hard drive fails, all data becomes inaccessible. A recommended option is RAID 5, which offers: Performance that can approach RAID 0 ■ Approximately 75% of the storage capacity of all the hard drives in the RAID configuration ■ Data protection in case a single hard drive fails ■
Page: 29
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 30 RAID 1 RAID 1 provides enhanced data security since all data is written to each disk in the volume. If a single disk fails, data remains available on the other disk in the volume. However, due to the time it takes to write data multiple times, performance is reduced. Additionally, RAID 1 will cut disk capacity by 50% or more since each bit of data is stored on both disks in the volume.
Page: 30
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 31 RAID 5 RAID 5 writes data across all hard drives in the volume and a parity block for each data block. If one physical hard drive fails, the data from the failed hard drive can be rebuilt onto a replacement hard drive. While the files stored on a RAID 5 volume remain intact should one hard drive fail, data can be lost if a second hard drive fails before the RAID is rebuilt with the replacement hard drive. A minimum of three hard drives is required to create a RAID 5 volume. RAID 5 offers performance that can approach RAID 0. The strong advantage that RAID 5 gives you is data protection. Additionally, you still have approximately 75% of the storage capacity of a RAID 0 array (based upon total available hard drives and storage capacities). The equation for determining the storage is: (The size of the hard drive with the smallest capacity in the array)*(Total hard drives-1). Example 1: An array is assigned five 3TB hard drives for a total of 15TB. The equation is: 3TB * 4= 12TB. Example 2: An array is assigned Three 2TB hard drives and one 3TB hard drive for a total of 9TB. The equation is: 2TB * 3= 6TB.
Page: 31
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 32 RAID 6 RAID 6 writes data across all disks in the volume and two parity blocks for each data block. If one physical disk fails, the data can be rebuilt onto a replacement disk. With two parity blocks per data block, RAID 6 supports up to two disk failures with no data loss. RAID 6 synchronizing from a failed disk is slower than RAID 5 due to the use of double parity. However, it is far less critical due to its double-disk security. A minimum of four disks is required to create a RAID 6 volume. RAID 6 offers very good data protection with a slight loss of performance compared to RAID 5.
Page: 32
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 33 RAID 10 RAID 10 combines the protection of RAID 1 with the performance of RAID 0. Using four disks as an example, RAID 10 creates two RAID 1 segments, and then combines them into a RAID 0 stripe. Such configurations offer exceptional data protection, allowing for two disks to fail across two RAID 1 segments. Additionally, RAID 10 writes data at the file level and, due to the RAID 0 stripe, gives users higher performance when managing greater amounts of smaller files. This means a more generous input output per second for data, referred to as IOPS. RAID 10 is a great choice for database managers that need to read and write a multitude of smaller files across the volume's disks. The impressive IOPS and data protection offered by RAID 10 gives database managers impressive reliability both in keeping files safe and rapid access.
Page: 33
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 34 RAID 5+Spare and RAID 6+Spare A RAID+Spare volume gives you a “hot-spare” that is ready to synchronize data immediately should a hard drive fail. If a hard drive in the volume fails, the data starts to synchronize with the spare. The clear advantage for a RAID volume with a spare is that you do not have to wait for a replacement hard drive. However, the spare cannot be used as storage during standard operation since its sole task is to take over should a hard drive fail. You can replace the failed hard drive immediately and, once synchronization is complete, assign it as new hot spare. Important info: For RAID+Spare volumes, data remains intact when a single hard drive fails and the spare begins synchronizing automatically. However, if a second hard drive in a RAID 5 volume fails before synchronization is complete, all data in the volume will be lost. The same is true for a RAID 1 volume. In the case of RAID 10, the second failed hard drive would have to be on the same mirrored set as the spare hard drive.. RAID 6 allows for two hard drives to fail.

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 35 HARD DRIVE MAINTENANCE Important info: Refer to the product's Warranty Information before performing any hardware repairs or maintenance that is not described in this manual. PRECAUTIONS “Hot-swapping” means that you can perform maintenance or upgrade hardware while the DAS is powered on. ■ The LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 features hot-swappable hard drives. During operation, the hard drives should remain in their slots for optimal air flow. Airflow and fan performance ■ are regulated by temperature. Observe all conventional ESD precautions when handling hard drives. ■ Important info: Your LaCie professional DAS gives you instant updates on the health of the enclosure and its hard drives. In addition to LED status indications, you can configure the system to send you email alerts (see the user manual for LaCie RAID Manager). Further, the enclosure will sound an alarm should a serious error occur (see System Overview). It is highly recommended that you address all warnings and alerts immediately. Ignoring a potential problem or urgent hardware alert can lead to irreparable damage to the DAS and a serious loss of data.
Page: 35
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 36 REPLACING A HARD DRIVE You can replace a hard drive if: You want to expand the available storage space by adding a hard drive with a larger capacity. ■ The hard drive has failed. ■ If a failed hard drive is under warranty, make certain to contact LaCie support to receive a replacement disk (see Getting Help for contact information). When adding or replacing hard drives, consider using Seagate Desktop HDD that are optimized for use with your LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2. For further information on compatible hard drives, visit LaCie support. Important info: Replace a faulty hard drive with a hard drive of equal or greater capacity. When handling hard drives, make sure that they are placed and stored on a cushioned surface. Since the LaCie 5big supports hot swapping hard drives, replacing a single disk usually does not require that you power down the device before following the steps below. Remove the disk tray for the hard drive that you will replace. To unlock the disk tray, use the included disk 1. drawer key to rotate the lock. Remove the disk tray by inserting your finger into the space behind the disk tray handle and pulling. Repeat 2. the process if you are replacing multiple disks.
Page: 36
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 37 If you are replacing a failed hard drive with a full disk tray, skip to Step 5. Continue here if you replacing the 3. hard drive using the same disk tray: Using a Phillips head screwdriver, carefully unfasten all four screws from the four tray slots and slide the 1. disk out of the tray. Repeat the process if you are installing multiple disks. Install the new hard drive into the disk tray: 4. Place the empty disk tray onto the flat work area with the handle on the bottom left. 1. Many disks have a label on one side and the printed circuit board on the opposite side. With its label side 2. facing up, gently place the hard disk within the disk tray. Keep the side with the printed circuit board on the work space and the SATA connector facing to the right. The four tray screw slots should align with the disk’s four screw holes. Using a Phillips head screwdriver, carefully fasten all four screws into the four tray slots. Do not over 3. tighten the screws. Repeat the process if you are installing multiple disks.
Page: 37
LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 38 Carefully insert the full disk tray into the empty disk slot. Gently push the disk tray handle firmly until you 5. feel it snap into place. The disk tray handle should be flush with the back of the enclosure. Repeat if you are adding multiple disks. Use the disk lock tool to lock the disk(s) in place. 6.

LaCie 5big Thunderbolt 2 User Manual 47 ENVIRONMENT A safe electrical ground connection must be provided to the power cord. Check the grounding of the enclosure before applying power. Provide a suitable power source with electrical overload protection to meet the requirements laid down in the technical specification. Never expose your device to rain, or use it near water, or in damp or wet conditions. Never place objects containing liquids on the enclosure, as they may spill into its openings.

Otherwise, there is an increased risk of electrical shock, short-circuiting, or fire. Hot surfaces (heat sinks) are exposed when the enclosure top cover is removed. Disconnect power and allow the enclosure to cool before working inside the system. Caution: Do not attempt to troubleshoot the power supply: there is a danger of electric shock inside. If the power supply fails during the warranty period, return it to LaCie. Fans WARNING: Do not attempt to open the cover to view or troubleshoot the fan, especially while the enclosure is powered on. You risk: voiding the warranty for your device ■ serious injury due to moving parts ■
