Daisy chaining with devices and displays that are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 technology. Charging the batteries of compatible devices. Daisy chain Thunderbolt 3 devices Thunderbolt 3 is an update of Thunderbolt 2 technology. While Thunderbolt 2 technology continues to provide impressive transfer rates up to 20Gb/s bi-directional, Thunderbolt 3 offers improved performance with a potential up to 40Gb/s bi-directional. Thunderbolt 3 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 3 to take advantage of the updates in performance and the intelligent sharing of bandwidth. Similar to Thunderbolt 2 technology, a single Thunderbolt 3 daisy chain can have up to seven devices, including the computer. For example, you can daisy chain five LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 3 enclosures on the same line with a display. How to daisy chain Connect the cable to one of the interface ports on the back of LaCie d2 and to your computer. The additional port on LaCie d2 can be used to daisy chain compatible Thunderbolt 3 peripherals, such as hard drives and monitors. If you have another Thunderbolt 3 storage device, make certain to connect it to the daisy chain before adding compatible displays or USB 3.1 (USB-C) devices.

Unmoun ng Your Hard Drive USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, and eSATA external devices feature “plug & play” connectivity, which means that your LaCie storage can be connected and disconnected while the computer is running. However, always eject a storage drive from your computer before physically disconnecting it. Your computer must perform filing and housekeeping operations on the drive before it's removed. Therefore, if you unplug the drive without using the operating system's software, your files can become corrupt or damaged. Mac There are several ways you can eject your hard drive from a Mac. See below for two options. Eject via Finder window 1. Open a Finder window. 2. On the sidebar, go to Devices to locate LaCie and click the eject symbol to the right of the drive name. 3. Once the hard drive disappears from the sidebar or, the Finder window closes, you can disconnect the hard drive's cable from your Mac. Eject via Desktop 1. Select the desktop icon for your hard drive and drag it to the Trash. (The icon pictured below is a generic USB device icon. Your LaCie storage may be represented by an icon that looks like the device itself.) 2. When the hard drive's icon is no longer visible on your desktop, you can physically disconnect the hard drive from your Mac. Windows 8 / Windows 10 Use the Safely Remove tool to eject a hard drive. 1. Click the Safely Remove icon in your Windows System Tray to view the devices you can eject.

About ﬁle system formats NTFS: since it is the native file system for Windows, volumes created in NTFS are read and write with computers running Windows. Mac OS can read NTFS volumes but cannot natively write to them. Mac OS Extended (HFS+): the native hard drive file system for Mac. Windows cannot natively read or write to HFS+ (journaled) hard drives. exFAT: generally compatible with Mac and Windows. exFAT is not a journaled file system which means it can be more susceptible to data corruption when errors occur or the drive is not disconnected properly from the computer. FAT32: compatible with Mac and Windows. However, FAT32 is a legacy file system designed for low capacity hard drives and it is not recommended for modern hard drives or operating systems. A FAT32 partition can reach up to 32GB when formatted on a Windows PC. How to choose the file system format Use NTFS if: …the storage device is connected to Windows PCs. Use HFS+ if: …the storage device is connected to Macs. You can use exFAT if: …the storage device is shared between Mac and Windows computers. Use FAT32 if: …the storage device is connected to older Windows and Mac computers. FAT32 is not recommended for modern operating systems and computers.
