I am Running win7 64Bit and have Four SATA 2.0 Hard Drives.

 

All my Hard Drives are in a USB 3.0 Exturnale Docking Bay.

 

There is a Free program called  SnapRaid.

 

I wanted to know if I could setup my Drives in a RAID with this program?

 

My Docking Bay has One USB 3.0 Cable so I did not know if it would work?

Thanks for the time.

I don't really know...but I would think that the idea of a RAID...would be defeated by using a USB-connected device/arrangement.

 

If the intent is merely to provide a backup...backup software can  do the job more reliably than any array, while using less drive space.
