At OWC, we make it as easy as possible for you to “double your data” on your own terms. If you want to add a second internal drive or add a Solid State Drive (SSD), then we have an OWC DIY Data Doubler Kit that is right for you!
What can “Data Doubler” mean for you? Well, that depends on what your needs are. You can add up to an additional 1.5TB of internal storage, install an SSD for nearly instant boot and app loads or even create a RAID array. There are plenty of other interesting options as well.
The OWC DIY Data Doubler Kits include everything you need to configure your Mac to best suit your needs. Our highly rated DIY Data Doubler Kits are a simple, affordable way to enhance performance, capacity and security.
All of this flexibility is right at your fingertips when you upgrade your MacBook, MacBook Pro or Mac mini with an OWC DIY Data Doubler Kit. OWC also offers install videos for all of our Data Doublers to help walk you through the process of adding one to your system. Once installed, the drive is recognized like any other high-speed SATA storage device. It’s really that easy!
Of course, it’s up to you to decide how one of our Data Doublers would best serve you. That’s why we broke down and explained a few of the different options for you:
Other World Computing announced today the availability of new OWC Data Doubler DIY Bundles, available for up to 3.0TB of internal, RAID-able drive capacity for Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro models. The OWC Data Doubler gives MacBook/MacBook Pro owners the flexibility to configure their computer’s internal drive array to suit their needs: greater overall storage for up to 3.0 TB total capacity; greater data integrity by creating an internal back-up drive; or greater performance by creating a Striped RAID in Disk Utility.
This straight-forward, easy to follow DIY kit lets anybody take their existing MacBook or MacBook Pro, and install more and/or faster storage than factory stock. The Data Doubler mounting solution comes complete with the Data Doubler internal drive mount, a detailed step-by-step Mac notebook model-specific installation guide, and a five-piece toolkit. Special Bundles, that also include up to two drives and up to 3.0TB of capacity, are also available. Article Continues…
Let’s face it…upgrading the ultra-slim 2012 iMac is no easy task. In fact, a user-upgradeable hard drive doesn’t exist at this point (rest assured we’re hard at work on this). That leaves the pricey factory option as the only current performance upgrade option. Fortunately, those looking to help their previous iMac model run as well as – if not better than – the new hard-to-upgrade model need look no further than OWC.
In the January issue of Macworld, we explained how our Data Doubler delivers a huge performance or capacity boost to a Mac mini, MacBook or MacBook Pro. This month, we’re focused on how to give your 2010-2011 iMacs a major boost with our mail-in Turnkey service or with our DIY Kits that feature free step-by-step installation videos.
Looking to help your 2011 iMac pack a serious punch? Upgrade the main hard drive bay with a high-performance OWC Mercury 6G SSD or a higher capacity hard drive. Need elite performance? You can upgrade up to three (yes, three!) 6Gb/s SSDs to get a total of 1.44TB capacity and incredible speeds. Or, you can install two SSDs along with a 4TB hard drive for the best of both speed and capacity worlds!
And if you have 2010 iMac 27” model, you can choose from the same options as the 2011 models and breathe new life into your machine so it runs better than new!
Cleanup and rebuilding efforts have only just begun for recovering victims of the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and Kansas. But a data recovery company is offering help to those in need when it comes to getting their digital lives back in order.
The Data Rescue Center will provide a complementary evaluation and $500 toward data recovery charges for victims of the storms. The Northern California-based company will ship its Red Box Kit to victims at no charge, including a postage paid box and custom packaging to ship an external or internal hard drive back to the company’s facility.
“Our condolences go out to the victims of these powerful and devastating storms. As people discover that their computers were damaged in the storm, we want them to be aware that in many cases we are able to help them recover files from those hard drives.” said Brian Crosby, Recovery Engineer at The Data Rescue Center.
The Data Rescue Center also offered precautionary steps to preserve data:
- Do not attempt to use your computer or external hard drive.
- Power down the computer or disconnect the external hard drive.
- Handle the drive carefully and do not attempt to open the drive.
For more information on the efforts by the good folks at The Data Rescue Center, contact a data recovery specialist at 877-501-4949 or visit www.TheDataRescueCenter.com. For more information on Data Recue software, you can also check out OWC’s selection.
Other World Computing announced today its popular OWC Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Storage Upgrade Kits now offer up to 1.5TB of storage/backup capacity—over 50 percent more than factory offered—for the latest 2012 MacBook Pros, all Apple MacBook Unibody models from 2008 and later, PC notebooks, and certain Xbox and PS3 gaming systems. OWC also offers DIY Kits up to 1.0TB and OWC SSD based choices up to 960GB for nearly every MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.
Solves Hard Drive Space Shortage
For many computer users, once hard drive space starts getting tight, they feel they have no other choice than to replace their entire machine. They often aren’t aware they can upgrade the internal drive themselves and what is required to get the job done. OWC DIY Kits are the cost-effective answer to this problem and offer complete, easy-to-install choices starting at $52.50 that can provide enough space for holding up to 1.5 million JPEG photos, 750 DVD movies, 115 hours of digital video, or 526,000 MP3 songs.
