Hey there, I'm trying to add a multi drive external enclosure to my 2011 Mac Mini by running a SATA to eSATA cable out the bottom. The enclosure I'm considering needs to connect to a motherboard that supports port multiplying to recognize the various attached drives. Do you know if the Mini will be compatible with multiple drives on one SATA cable? If not, are there enclosures that have this ability built in?

Thanks!

Other World Computing (OWC) sells the enclosures. Check them out at this LINK. If you have any questions about the setup, use their live chat or give them a call on their 800 number.

Hmmm. The enclosures I'm looking at aren't sold by OWC. I guess the question remains: Can the Logic Board support a port multiplied external enclosure? I'll try to contact OWC in the morning. Thanks!
