I have set up my new 8 TB G-Raid Thunderbolt 3 and used the Configurator to change to Raid 1 Mirrored. So far everything is working great.
I have two questions:
- Do most people leave their G-Raid on and just let it sleep (that is what I do with my Computer) or is it recommended to Shut it down?
- Has anyone tried using Encryption on their G-Raid or is it not recommended.
I would appreciate any feedback on these question.
I have always shutdown my G-Raid Drives when not in use i have a 4TB and 6TB booth are Firewire 800 usb 2.0 and Sata i just prefer to shut down when not in use i don’t know if this is the norm or not but it’s what i do.
Thank You Rydia for the information, I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I leave my computer on all the time and let it sleep, so I am going to do the same with my G-Raid.
I will take your advice and will not “Encrypt” the G-Raid, my “Plan B” will be to “Password Protect” only certain files using the appropriate App e.g. Numbers or Pages. These passwords are kept in my Key Chain and would be “Recoverable”.
Thank You for your help.
