RAID enclosure for 2x HDD/SSD
with USB 3.1 (Gen 2) Type-C® interface and fan
- COMPREHENSIVE SETTINGS: The external hard drive enclosure supports RAID mode 0 and 1 as well as the setting to display each hard drive individually or bundled in the system (Single/Large)
- SPEED: The external hard drive enclosure has USB 3.1 (Gen 2) which allows transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. UASP is also supported
- LED INDICATOR: In order to always be up to date, the enclosure has an LED on the front that always shows the current status of the hard drive. This way, one knows about the use, access and possible errors
- COOLING: The hard drives always remain cool in the enclosure, because the heat generated is excellently transported out of the enclosure by a 60 mm fan, thus ensuring super performance
- FAILURE SAFETY: If the enclosure is in RAID 1 mode, a defective hard drive can be replaced without any problems, as the data is then simply transferred to the new hard drive
External 2 bay RAID system for 2x 2.5" or 3.5" SATA drives
USB 3.1 (Gen 2) host interface for high transfer rates with modern devices
Supported RAID levels: RAID 0, 1, SINGLE, LARGE
Cool operation thanks to active 60 mm fan
Drives are very easy to replace thanks to Plug & Play and HotSwap
LEDs for power, HDD operation, access, error
Name is program
The IB-RD3621-C31 is made of lightweight plastic. Since raiding is very heavy on the drives a lot of heat is produced, the fan on the back of the enclosure is perfectly capable of cooling the HDDs.
Thanks to the ON/OFF switch, the IB-RD3621-C31 is a true energy saver. What is likewise well-controlled are high data transfer rates via USB 3.1 (Gen 2) connection. If desired, the drives are very easy to replace thanks to HotSwap and Plug & Play functions.
Have the pleasure - twice!
Two drives in the form factor 2.5" or 3.5" fit into this RAID enclosure. Available RAID modes are SINGLE, LARGE, RAID 0, and RAID 1. That makes this candidate beautifully versatile and prepared for any situation.

Compatibility with the host computer
Are cables included in the package content?
If you want to connect a USB Type-C® enclosure to a USB Type-A connector, it is possible to use an adapter from ICY BOX (IB-CB015). The same works in the other direction from USB Type-A to USB Type-C® (IB-CB003).
Up to which hard disk capacity can I equip the ICY BOX?
Can a HDD be removed from an external HDD and installed into an ICY BOX?
Are special drivers required?
Can the enclosure also be connected to USB 2.0 ports?
Do I need a power supply for my external 2.5" enclosure?
Why is the HDD/SSD not recognized?
If the HDD/SSD is new, it must first be correctly formatted and partitioned before it is displayed in the system.
Use a different USB port on your notebook or PC.
Check if the power supply is connected and the external enclosure is switched on with the on/off switch (only for 3.5" enclosures).
Update the USB 3.0 / USB 3.1 drivers of your notebook/PC or mainboard. Current USB drivers can be found on the website of your mainboard manufacturer.
Everything is connected, but no function.
To test your components, proceed as follows:
- Use the cables, hard drives, and enclosures on another system to see if your system is the source of the problem.
- Use a different cable, HDD/SSD, and hard disk enclosure one after the other to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in a different setup.
Where can I find drivers for my device?
Why is the built-in fan so noisy? (Not all devices do have a fan.)
Can I install another fan?
Why is the SOHO/RAID system not recognised?
Check if the power supply is connected and the SOHO/RAID enclosure is switched on with the on/off switch.
Check if the SOHO/RAID enclosure works on another USB port or connect it with another USB cable.
Update the USB 3.0 / USB 3.1 drivers of your PC or mainboard. Current USB drivers can be found on the website of your mainboard manufacturer.
Update the SATA host drivers of your mainboard.
Can I connect my device via the USB and eSATA interfaces at the same time?
Where do I find drivers for my device?
Can hard disks with a capacity of more than 2 TB be used?
Mac® user can only use hard disks with more than 2 TB from the Tiger 10.4.11 operating system or higher.
Why does the device switch to stand-by mode automatically?
Why is the built-in fan so loud? (Not all units have a fan)
Can I install a different fan in my SOHO/RAID system?
Which functions do the different RAID levels offer?
Spanning connects several drives to one large virtual drive and thus bypasses the physical limitation of individually connected drives. The data is written continuously from drive 1 to drive 2. This is not a SINGLE JBOD.
Configuration of a RAID controller with several drives that do not form a group. This makes the connected drives available to the operating system individually.
RAID 0 (RAID 0 Striping)
Striping combines several drives into one large virtual drive as one logical unit. The data is written to all drives in parallel, which leads to an increase in the data transfer rate. However, if one drive fails, all data is lost.
RAID 1 (RAID 1 Mirroring)
Mirroring is the automatic mirroring of data on several drives. This ensures a high level of data security. If one drive fails, access is still possible and after replacing the defective drive, the data mirror is restored. The usable memory corresponds to the capacity of the smallest drive used.
A RAID 5 is a group consisting of at least three drives. Data is distributed to all drives and these are additionally equipped with parity information. Thus, even in the event of a failure, all data can be accessed and the defective drive can be replaced. RAID 5 therefore offers increased fail-safety.
