On the description it says "A simple reformat is all it takes to ready G-RAID for use with Windows® systems." How do I do it? Is the instructions of how to reformat it already in the box? I am trying to decide between this and the 6TB for $499, but I first want to make sure that it works with my PC.

Great for active servers, not so much for home systems, 2013-04-30
By Tom 


The drive performs well, through FW800 I was getting about 55 MB/sec throughput (transferring from a faster thunderbolt drive as the GRAID was acting as a time machine backup drive). However, there are two things that make this drive not appropriate for home use.

1) Ok, this is a small point, but the activity light it like a strobe light in intensity and frequency. If the computer this drive is attached to is in a dark room it will look like a disco when it's transferring data. Worse still, there is no way to disable the activity light via firmware. Black duct tape is what web searches and forums could best provide as a workaround. Pretty weak

2) This is the much bigger issue. If your computer sleeps, or you set OSX to sleep hard drives when possible, there is a high probability that the drive will not wake up again until it is completely unplugged and power cycled. Again, having your computer on all the time and all the drives spinning all the time is 1-Very ine...

Excellent HD, but PC Setup Required. Great Tech Assistance., 2013-05-15
By Jack 
First impressions were very positive -- it has an impressive finish and heft that are consistent with the claim that it is built to "industry standards" - whatever that means. It comes with all four connectors, which is an unusually nice touch for most equipment. Instructions are minimal, but there are adequate warnings that this is not intended to be an out-of-the-box PC hard drive. And that is quite right. I don't think they meant it to be as difficult as I experienced, but the end result has been quite satisfactory, and consistent with my expectations.

Disclaimer: I am not a MAC guy, this hard drive was clearly marketed to MAC owners, and I bought it from MacMall. So I deserve no sympathy for what ensued.

The first hitch was with the connector. I bought the drive because I actually need 4 TB -- my digital music collection is approaching 3.5 TB; the second reason for buying G-Tech's GRAID is that it has an eSATA connection - which should give near-USB3 speed without ha...
