The Workhorse Drive Dock
Drive Dock is the ultimate, high-performance bare drive access tool. For creative workflows, backup, or other tasks requiring constant access to multiple drives, Drive Dock delivers a compact, easy solution with the performance of a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface.
An Essential Workflow Solution
OWC Drive Dock is the easiest way to access bare SATA drives. Hot swap, read multiple drives simultaneously, or boot from bare drives, all at the speed of the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface. 
Each bay features its own independent power switch and LED activity monitor. Drive Dock uses a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface for versatile compatibility and an auto-switching internal power supply compatible with standard dual-prong power cables.
Customized Flexibility
Drive Dock is flexible enough to use on almost any system. It works perfectly as an on-location backup solution, or for creative professionals using multiple bare drives.


For video and audio content pros working with multiple bare drives on big projects, Drive Dock delivers amazing flexibility and convenience, making it an indispensable drive tool.
Designed to Accommodate Your Life
Drive Dock's unique design makes hot-swapping a breeze. Two drive bays accommodate both 2.5" and 3.5" drives and can access a drive in each simultaneously. 
Featuring rugged aluminum construction, quiet, fanless operation, and complete with a USB 3.1 Gen 1 cable, the OWC Drive Dock is an essential component to any high-demand workflow.
