I plan to start with just two drives, using a powered USB 3.0 hub and separate USB to SATA cables for each connected to the hub.  Will there be a problem detecting the drives like this?  Also could I keep adding drive to the hub like this (don't ever see wanting more than 4)?

Also is there a max drive capacity that can be used?  Was thinking of 4TB?

Thanks...

My Rock64 is connected to three USB3 drives through a 12V powered USB3 hub. One of the drives is 4TB.

If you plan to connect  multiple disks, get a good powered USB3 hub which have current backflow prevention.

Thanks rontant

That is exactly how I was thinking of doing it.  How do you find the access speeds through the hub like that?
