What is a RAID drive? RAID, stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks or Drives. It is a type of encryption format that can be configured to optimize workflows.

The G RAID external hard drive can be configured in a RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD. It comes out of the box setup as a RAID 0 but the user can setup their G RAID to their desired format. If you are going to be using the G RAID drive for video editing you may consider setting your hard drive to RAID 0 this setup provides ultimate hard drive speeds. If you are going to be using the G RAID hard drive as a backup solution you may consider setting your drive for RAID 1 or mirrored data redundancy. This is the Best external hard drive setup for photos because if one drive of the RAID array fails the data will remain intact in the uncorrupted drive.

The G RAID hard drive is also configured for Thunderbolt 3, allowing for daisy chaining up to 6 devices. It is also backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 2 using the Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adaptor. The G raid hard drive is also compatible with MAC and Windows.

The G RAID Drive Thunderbolt 3 HDMI, allows for an additional video display.

The G Raid Thunderbolt 3 drive comes in a RAID Array of 8 TB, 12 TB, 20 TB and 28 TB.

If you need a bigger capacity drive for configuring RAID Arrays of RAID 5 and RAID 6. The G-Technology G-Speed Shuttle XL Thunderbolt 3 is a powerful backup storage solution that can be set to RAID, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10 & RAID 50. You can also get this drive in larger storage capacities of 32 TB, 48 TB, 64 TB, 80 TB, 96 TB, and 112 TB.

G-Technology G|RAID Video transcript:

Intro (What is a RAID drive) :
In this video I will show you how to configure your G-Raid to optimize your workflow!

Alright…First things first, what is RAID? RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, and is the building blocks of redundancy in data storage drives. RAID 0 is specifically used to optimize speed and capacity for ultimate performance, or RAID 1 to mirror data onto another disk for safer backups . So lets go a little more in depth into the different RAID settings.

Scene 2 (Types of Raid hard drives) :

RAID 0 or striped, this setup distributes different parts of an individual piece of data into several drives for maximum speed. It is specifically used as drive for video editing or content editing because data is distributed without redundancy. If one drive fails, all data will be lost. This particular drive comes setup as a RAID 0 by default.

RAID 1 or Mirrored, is used for maximum backup protection but you lose half of your drives capacity. All data in the drive is distributed and copied twice. So if you have a drive like this G-technology 8TB you will really have 4TB of storage capacity because all your data is being mirrored.

RAID 5 or Single Drive Redundancy, This particular G-tech drive requires a minimum of 3 disks. So it would not work on the smaller, 2 drive G| Raid drives. This would go well with a drive like the G-Technology G-SPEED Shuttle, where there are at least 4 hard drive disks. If one fails then 3 of the 4 disks will be fine.

RAID 6 or 2 Drive Redundancy, this is a step up from Raid 5. This particular setup requires 4 disks. If 2 of those drives fail then the 2 remaining are safe.

Scene 3 (How to format a g-raid hard drive) :

Before we start keep in mind that changing the RAID configurations or reformatting the drive may purge all your data. The G-Technnology G|RAID can be formatted for both Windows and MacOS, and comes pre-formatted for MacOS straight out of the box. All you have to do is select HFS+ if you are using Mac OS like me, or NTFS if you are using Windows. Comment below if you would like me to do a tutorial on just Windows formatting. If you need to work cross-platform, ExFat will work for both Mac OS and Windows.

I am currently using the G-Technology G|RAID drive 8TB drive. This one comes with two individual 4TB drives. Like most G-Technology Thunderbolt Drives you can daisy chain up to 6 drives via it’s thunderbolt connection. I will put the link below so you can get this drive for yourself. This drive comes with Thunderbolt 3— which allows for daisy chaining up to 5 more devices.

what's the HDMI port used for?

Just bought a G-Tech RAID enclosure, Firewire/USB, but new. Just discovered that G-Tech apparently refuses to support it AT ALL. As in they've removed ALL the downloads to do this. They don't even have a legacy download section.
This is bad. Really bad. Shame on you, G-Tech/Western Digital. You just lost a customer for good.

Hi, great clear vid, thanks! I have a new 36TB G-RAID. Before even formatting, it was clicking gently, like a frozen HD. Is that normal? I went through the configuration (RAID 1), and no problems. But, it's still clicking—this doesn't seem right. I dropped a small file on it, and now it won't even recognize the drive. I get this pop up: COULD NOT MOUNT (G-RAID DRIVE)COM.APPLE. Disk management.dis enter error 0. Is this as simple as a bad drive, or somesuch, from the factory? (I'm running an iMac Pro 11.6 OS) Thanks in advance, I just subscribed and liked.

How is this Drive for Windows 10?

Charles A. Ragucci 17/12/2021 - 6:34 Chiều

Have to be honest that procedure is just crazy insane to verify your raid is working. You could loose data in the process? The company G Technology has not provided its users a way to verify disk condition and or visualize usage.

what to do if one drive fails? can i swap it with new drive? and how do i make it into a raid again?

Great tutorial, thank you!

Have to drop a quick note here, since I ran into problems (similar to Paulie) when trying to "check" the drives by ejecting them from the G-RAID Shuttle 4. Drive bays went red and the device would not detect the drives upon reinsertion, labeling them as "Dead." I had to call in to support, and they had me go into Terminal and write commands to get the drives reconnected. So, um, if anyone's considering the quick "pop and check" method described here, at least with the Shuttle 4, I don't recommend it.

The problem is when the enclosure dies… this happen to me, and they don’t make my enclosure anymore..

This was really helpful. Just helped me set up my new 6TB/12TB in RAID 1. Thanks!

I use Windows. Do you have an "Idiots" guide for me?
I am 74 and this technology doesn't come easy. So if you could help, I would greatly appreciate that!

Max Gioviale 17/12/2021 - 6:34 Chiều

Hi your content are awesome. I know that G-raid thunderbolt 3 can me connected to other G-raid thunderbolt 3 if in the years you may need extra space. what I am asking and I didn't find on the web is: If you buy 1 drive G-raid thunderbolt 3 now and you put it raid 1 to be safe, can you in the future buy another G-raid thunderbolt 3, daisy chain then and then manage the space as a raid 5 or raid 6 so you have more space and you still are safe? Please may you give me and advice on this topic? If the daisy chain may manage raid 5 or 6 from 4 HDD (2HDD from one device and 2HDD from another device) that should be really awesome for projects in the future, not only in the present.

This might be a dumb question but must all raid drives be the exact same size in order to work in a raid config?

When I click on the downloads button and select the Mac Driver, it flags up a security risk. The link isn't to be trusted according to both Firefox and Safari 🙁

Firefox is giving me a warning about downloading the software and not allowing me to proceed. Should I be worried?

How much would a new drive cost once those are maxed out ?

Stephen Baxter 17/12/2021 - 6:34 Chiều

Excellent demonstration of RAID.

Deao Satori 17/12/2021 - 6:34 Chiều

Do you find these drives really loud and annoying on a desk top?
