Hi,

I have a brand new ultra powerful notebook (XMG Apex 15). I'm very pleased with it but, there is one drawback, it does not have Thunderbolt technology.
I have 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen2, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2 onboard as fastest means to attach an external backup drive.

I learned also that HDD are more longterm reliable than external SSD when it comes to data storage.

Now here is the question, is there a way to attach one external drive with the two 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports in parallel to speed the backup data transfer up? Basically feeding it in parallel? Anyone knows of such a drive?
Or is there a way to combine their troughput with some sort of adapter into a thunderbolt connection?

I am after a storage solution, so using an external SSD is not what I aim for.

Thanks for your thoughts on this,

Franziska
