I have a "Mediasonic 3.5-Inch USB 2.0 and eSATA Pro Box 4-Bay Enclosure HF2-SU2S2" and it has 4 hard drive slots, can each hard drive be a different size or must they all be the same for it to operate. Im not trying to raid, I just want to access 4 hard drives with 1 connection.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The size of the external hard disk drive always depends on the design and brand of the manufacturer. The most important thing to do is to consider the compatibility of each hard disk drive.

    If you really mean size, then I guess yes. It is designed for 3.5 '' drives. If you mean capacity, then I guess the answer is no. If you are asking this to make a buying decision, I would recommend looking for the product manual and/or contacting the manufacturer, to be sure.
