OWC Data Doubler Optical Bay Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Solution For 2009 Mac mini
OWC Data Doubler Mac mini 2009 Optical Bay Drive/SSD Mounting Solution
Includes everything needed to replace your optical drive with a second hard drive or SSD
Boost your storage capacity by adding up to an additional 1.5TB of internal storage with a second hard drive, or enjoy near-instantaneous boot and app loading times by adding a Solid State Drive (SSD).
Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your 2009 Mac mini’s internal SuperDrive with an OWC Data Doubler with a hard drive or SSD. The custom-engineered Data Doubler bracket comes ready to mount any 2.5″ SATA drive up to 12.5mm in height.
Once you’ve installed the entire Data Doubler drive assembly into your 2009 Mac mini’s optical drive bay, you can customize how you want your internal storage to perform. Drive customization is easy and built right into OS X as the new Data Doubler mounted drive can be setup using Apple’s Disk Utility program in which you can format the drive, create a RAID array using two drives together, or partition the new drive. Once formatted you can also setup the second drive as a Time Machine backup so you can take your backup with your wherever you go.

This OWC Data Doubler is compatible with:
Mac mini (Late 2009) Model ID: Macmini3,1 (2.26GHz, 2.53GHz, 2.66GHz) Mac mini (Early 2009) Model ID: Macmini3,1 (2.0GHz, 2.26GHz)
NOT COMPATIBLE: Mac mini (Late 2009 Server) Model ID: Macmini3,1 (2.53GHz)
Special note for the 2009 Mac mini.
We highly recommend the use of a SATA 2.0 (3Gb/s) SSD such as the OWC Mercury Electra 3G for this Mac
While 6G SSDs do function, some only do so at SATA Revision 1.0 (1.5Gb/s, 150MB/s) speeds rather that the SATA Revision 2.0 (3.0Gb/s 300MB/s) speed the computer can deliver.
