I am needing to purchase a 2 or 3 slot hard drive dock.


I see most have 2 or 3 slots but with 1 usb port. So if I connect the usb to my with all 3 slots full will the pc see 3 individual hard drives or as 1 big hard drive?


Some higher prices ones I see something like 2 hard drive slots but the dock has 3 usb ports, is that just so that 3 pc's can access hard drives at same time?

It should see them as individual drives, though data transfer is a bit slow on these things if using more than one drive.

 Granted not all of these docks work the some, some are for transferring between hard drives only and some are for external data transfer.

I have a couple of these that do what you want.  You don't have to fill all of the bays. All of the connected drives act as if they were connected individually.
