G-Raid Thunderbolt 3 Failure


#1

I just received a new Thunderbolt 3 12TB G-RAID for my Mac. Upon startup, the G is red and the drive won’t mount. I get a dialog box to initialize the drive. When I press initialize, I get Disk Utility. Strangely, it reads the drives as 2TB drives and not as 6TB drives. At any rate, I can’t mount it. Can anyone please help?

thanks,

Rob

Open the front face of the drive and verify that both drives have lights on them. If not then eject and re-seat them. Download the RAID configurator tool from our site here: DOWNLOAD

With the tool you can set the drive to RAID0 (all 12TB, no protection) or RAID1 (6TB, mirror) or JBOD (drives are individual).

After that has been configured you can erase the drive in Disk Utility so it can be used. If you are still having issues or it isn’t showing the proper capacity then we would suggest returning your drive to the place of purchase.
