What’s the max number of HDDs

Does anyone know how many HDDs can be attached to 1 intel NUC? My NUC has 1 usb-c port and 3 USB3.1 ports. Wondering how many 18TB HDDs can be attached to it via USB for example can I buy 3 HDDs enclosures each containing 5 18TB HDDs for a max farming capacity of 270 TB.

As many powered USB extenders as you can buy, basically. I think the USB device limit is 128 though?


Yep, each USB controller can only have up to 127 devices.


Can i use USB extender with NAS HDD? Or do i need sata extender?
