I'd like to buy the My Book Duo 6TB to use it on an iMac 5K 2017 in RAID 0 mode.
Do someone knows if, leaving it always switched on, is it always "seen" by the iMac, in any situation?
I mean, if I leave the My Book Duo always switched on and I restart the iMac or it wakes up from stop mode, do I need also to restart the My Book Duo or it's seen from the iMac?
I ask this because I assembled an external RAID system with a generic case bought from Amazon and two Seagate Barracuda HDDs and I always had to restart the RAID case because, when the iMac went in stop mode for more than a minute or I restarted it, the external drive wasn't seen by the iMac.
I'd like to "forget" the My Book, so I'd like to know if it will automatically start and stop, following the iMac switching on and off, without any other action from the user.
Last question: did someone test the My Book Duo speed, in RAID 0 mode, with Blackmagic Speed Disk Test (5GB files mode)?
I'd like to have a direct comparison between my "self made" system (350-360MB/Sec for writing and reading speed) and this My Book Duo, even if I know that writing and reading speeds are variable, depending from several factors.
Many thanks in advance to everybody!
