I’ve got a question and I don’t know if it is hardware based or software based.
I’m looking to pick up a hard drive. The sabrent rocket xtrm thunderbolt 3/usb 3 external drives automatically detect usb-c or thunderbolt connections, so they’re usable with both types of port. The sabrent thunderbolt 3 M.2 tool free enclosure appears to only advertise thunderbolt 3 connectivity. I was wondering if the ability to auto-detect usb-c or thunderbolt 3 was hardware based or if it was software that they loaded onto the drives included in the XTRM drives, which obviously wouldn’t be included with a driveless enclosure. I’d prefer getting an enclosure so that I can choose whichever nvme drive I’d like and potentially upgrade it in the future, but I’d like usb-c support as well as thunderbolt 3 support. Do you guys have any idea what’s going on here and what my options are?
