G-Technology Spare 8000 Overview

The 8TB Spare 8000 Enterprise Hard Drive from G-Technology is a hot-swappable Spare series drive for use with the G-Technology G-SPEED Studio, G-SPEED Studio XL, G-SPEED Shuttle, G-RAID Studio, and G-RAID arrays. As a Spare series drive, its frame is fitted with a mounting system that only allows it to be used with the mentioned G-Tech products.

This drive allows you to store and access up to 8TB of your data when installed in a G-Technology array. In terms of speed, this drive operates at 7200 rpm and the 64MB cache helps ensure uninterrupted data transfers.

This drive uses the HelioSeal platform, which means that it is filled with helium instead of regular air. As helium is lighter than air, this helps reduce vibration, power consumption by up to 23%, noise levels by up to 30%, temperature by up to 7°F, and weight by 1.8 oz, while also increasing drive capacity by up to 50% over the previous generation.

I have a G-Technology external unit with 2x4 TB drives in Raid 1. Can I replace the drives one at a time with a pair of 8TB drives and upgrade to 8TB Raid 1 storage?
Asked by: Arthur
No, the RAID family will need to be recreated. First the data must be offloaded, drives replaced, and then RAID recreated.

I found one of the HDDs in my 2x4TB G-RAID USB/eSATA/Firewire was damaged and pull it out. Data was backed up. If I purchased two larger (8TB or 6TB) replacement HDDs and plug them in, would my G-DRIVE recognize them?

Yes, it will work with your G-RAID.
