The NPS-10 accepts 2.5-inch SATA hard drive(or SSD) used for laptop computer. The thickness of hard drive should be less than 7.2mm. Internal drive capacity is limited to 32TB.
For external 2.5-inch HDD powered via USB cable, a power limitation to the NPS-10’s USB host port may cause compatibility problems. In particular, hybrid external HDD such as Thunderbolt/USB combo HDD consumes more power than conventional USB external HDD, so it may not be recognized by the NPS-10 due to power problems.Self-powered external HDDs such as 3.5-inch external HDDs can be used without power compatibility problems.
Recommended Internal Drive
An external USB hard drive can be connected to the NPS-10 via the ‘HDD Host’ slot of the NPS-10. This allows users to make secondary copies to external USB drives without using a computer for additional data safety(Sync function). External hard drives must be formatted using exFAT file system. Connect the USB Power to the NPS-10 before connecting the USB device.
