3TB replacement


#1

Hi. Are the 3TB G-safe units limited to 3TB replacement drives? Is there any reason why larger matched drives can’t be used? I read in another post the the 2Tb units are limited to 2Tb, so I’m assuming the answer is going to be similar

They were never tested with anything over 3TB so that is why we can only support 3TB drives in the units.

Hi Rydia.
Thanks for the reply. Can I infer there is no technical limitation to the units, recognising and functioning with larger drives?

Technically there shouldn’t be however like I said we didn’t test them. But at the time the major technological hurdle was LBA48 support, once you break the >2TB barrier, in most cases you no longer have a limitation.
