LaCie 4TB D2 Desktop Hard Drive - Thunderbolt & USB 3.0
LaCie 4TB D2 Desktop Hard Drive - Thunderbolt & USB 3.0
LaCie's d2 hard drive helps you get the job done faster with dual Thunderbolt 2, USB 3.0 interfaces, and a 7200 RPM hard disk. And it makes your work space even more comfortable thanks to an innovative, all-aluminium unibody design that helps keep vibration and operating noise remarkably low.
Versatility for professional environments
Dual Thunderbolt 2 ports let you daisy chain up to six devices to a single Thunderbolt port on your Mac. This means that you can connect up to five LaCie d2 drives plus a 4K display to an iMac Thunderbolt 2 port, giving you impressive scalability and convenience for 4K or other workflows. And since USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 2 are backward compatible, you always get the fastest speeds your computer allows.
Advanced design and enhanced durability
In the process of redesigning the d2 drive, LaCie focused relentlessly on reliability and usability for professionals. The unibody enclosure is forged from a single sheet of aluminium, providing uncommon rigidity. It also draws heat away from the hard disk, eliminating the need for a fan, improving the lifespan of components and delivering ultra-quiet operation.
The LaCie d2 includes everything professionals need for secure backup: a backup software suite and compatibility with Time Machine and Windows Backup. It also includes LaCie Private-Public software, which lets you password-protect volumes with AES 256-bit encryption.
For Thunderbolt connections, save energy by pressing the power button to spin down disks without interrupting daisy chain transfers. For USB connections, the disk spins down automatically when the host operating system goes to sleep.

Can we format this hard disk as FAT32? I don't see this characteristics even if I guess we can.
- Asked by Beatrice V from Champigny
- on 20-May-2015
FAT32 formats partitions up to 32GB, the default maximum size set by Windows. Large capacity drives FAT32 formats partitions up to 32GB, the default maximum size set by Windows. Large capacity drives like this aren't suited to FAT32 and are not normally recognised by Windows. A Mac sees it differently, and the format problem can be worked around, but it can be problematic. I've had 4 x 3TB drives fail within a couple of months of purchase, so I won't be doing it again.
