I have an issue that means I have to use a powered USB hub for the HDD that is attached to my RPI4 (long story). The hub just broke.
My budget doesn't allow for a decent powered USB3 hub BUT does allow for a decent USB3 Y Power Cable.
Rookie question, but would this work? I just want the HDD to have its own power supply.
Further question: If it would work, can I just plug both Y ends of the power cable into the Pi to get more power for the HDD?
