Buffalo MiniStation Extreme 500GB
MiniStation Extreme comes equipped with a hard drive installed. It is not designed nor supported for users to replace the hard drive, and doing so will void the product warranty. The internal hard drive is a standard 2.5'' SATA HDD.
Yes, MiniStation Extreme features a standard Mini-USB 3.0 connection and the integrated cable is removable for use with user-supplied USB cables. Included in the package is USB 3.0 extension cable.

The Buffalo Tools suite of software is optional software that provides performance enhancing technologies, backup, and encryption amongst other features. To use these features, software components must be used.

Yes, MiniStation Extreme supports Mac OS X. However, many components of Buffalo Tools may not work in Mac OS. By default MiniStation Extreme is formatted in NTFS. It requires formatting by Mac OS by using Mac's included "Disk Utility" software (Inside the Utilities folders in Applications). Also, there is 3rd party software for Mac OS that allows Mac to support NTFS.
MiniStation Extreme features a hardware encryption chip that encrypts all data on the hard drive. The encryption is always on, but it is completely transparent to the user and device until a password is enabled. Once the password is enabled, it MUST be provided to access the data. It cannot be circumvented by removing the hard drive from the MiniStation Extreme. The data on the device is encrypted by the highest standard of encryption available on the market today. Also, if you do not use the password and remove the drive from the enclosure, the data will still be encrypted and inaccessible outside of the MiniStation Extreme's chassis.
