My 500 GB eHDD is nearly out of space. I am considering a NAS with a mirror or another eHDD.

Can I daisy chain any kind of USB eHDD? I have a Lacie Quadra drive and am considering a Lacie Grand.

No, you can't daisy-chain USB. You can however use a powered USB2 hub. For daisy-chaining you need firewire connectivity. FW is superior for external devices anyway.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
