Data Doubler for Mac mini 2011, 2012 and later for lower drive bay
Data Doubler SSD/2.5" Hard Drive installation Kit for Mac mini 2011, 2012 & Later Models with Upper Drive Bay populated.
Includes: Data Doubler Mounting Kit and Tools for Mac mini 2011 & 2012 Models (note: 2011 and most 2012 Mac Minis generally have the lower drive bay already populated, so require the OC-DDMM11D2 kit for mounting the extra drive in the lower bay)
Running out of storage space in your Mac mini or looking to improve performance with an OWC SSD? Now you can add a second 9.5mm or smaller 2.5" SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive (sold separately) to your 2011, 2012 or Later Mac mini.
Before attempting to perform this installation, please watch the following instructional video in its entirety to determine your ability to perform this complex procedure. OWC assumes no responsibility for damage that may occur during the install. Technical support for this DIY product consists only of this video:
*NOTE: A small number of 2012 units were shipped with the drive mounted in the upper drive bay rather than the more typical lower bay shown in this video. If you have a 2012 or later model, you will want to determine the configuration of your Mac mini's drives prior to ordering. To do this, open Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app and click on the grey drive icon at the left-edge of the window. If you see "Lower" after the "Connection ID" at the bottom-left corner of the window, you need only the standard OWC 'Data Doubler' SSD/2.5" Hard Drive Installation Kit. If you see "Upper" then you have a special configuration which will need these additional components, and you will need to also refer to the Addendum video.
