I am getting a G Raid with Thunderbolt 2. It has two 8TB drives.
- Are there any issues with swapping out the two 8TB drives with two 4TB drives?
- Can this be configured with a Mac as JBOD?
- If I use it to edit 4K video, my understanding is that I need to configure it as some RAID option to make it faster? Which RAID configuration do I need to look into?
Means 2 drives at a time, a pair is 2 drives. Just like you asked.
Only a single drive will appear on the computer when using RAID0 and 1. only JBOD will they mount individually.
RAID0 they run faster, RAID1, not faster, just that it is mirroring the data to the other drive simultaneously.
It might be possible, however the railings are designed for full size drives and we have not tested SSD media in these enclosures.
