Running Catalina, new 2018 Mac Mini (“new” as of 2 months ago), and I have a BlackX docking station (older version of -> https://www.newegg.com/thermaltake-st0014u-d-dual-hard-drive-enclosure/p/1B4-006X-00028) that’s acting flaky.
Long story short, I used to use this docking station on an older computer, and it’s been sitting in my closet. I had a Seagate 4TB external fail last night, so I shucked the drive and removed the electronics. Then I plugged the drive into the BlackX, along with another hard drive that I used to use for backups. I’m getting occasional “this drive was not ejected properly” on both drives simultaneously, so I figure it’s most likely the dock as I know the other (non-Seagate) drive was in great shape last time I used it.
So I’m looking for a different dock. At least two drives, ideally - the ability to add more might be nice. I don’t think I need a NAS or Drobo or anything weird like that, as I can back up anything that’s direct-attached to my Backblaze.
