Swapping Drives (G-Raid)

When I fill my current 6tb g-raid, I’d like to insert new drives and start adding data.

I’d like to be able to remove the drives that I fill, store them, and access the data on those drives in the future.

Looks something like this:

  1. Fill raid with data in 2023
  2. Once raid is full, remove those drives and save them in storage
  3. Insert new drives for 2024 data
  4. In the future, remove 2024 drives inside the enclosure and insert 2023 drives to access data
  5. Remove 2023 drives and store, returning the 2024 drives for current data storage

Are the g-raid enclosures set up for this type of system?
