4TB G-Technology G-DRIVE Disk Replacement g technology drive

by myyachtguardian123



I wanted to take the 4TB disk out of a G-Technology G-DRIVE unit to use in another enclosure with USB 3.0 and thought I’d install a spare disk in the case after I finished.

Perfect timing. It seems my G-Drive just died as it won’t even mount and Disk Utility can’t open it or repair it. I took the unit apart and it’s a 4TB HGST SATA drive. Will any 3.5” SATA drive work as a replacement or do I need to pay attention to the voltage ratings, etc? Or do I just buy an OWC Elite Pro drive/enclosure and put this G-Drive out to pasture?

Legally speaking, "warranty void" stickers aren't valid/ or legal if you're in the US, because of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act from the 70's. The problem is, are you going to spend the cost for a lawyer and court costs to take the company to court over something that costs less than $200. You would win, but at what cost. That's the real issue and why companies that put them on there do it.

If I replaced the HDD with an SSD, would the G-Drive support trim if it was a thunderbolt enclosure?

this works great if the drives are empty or will be wiped/formatted.  alot of these enclosures do something to the partition table that makes them only viewable in that enclosure.  once you take them out and use them in a mac or pc, the partitions will not be viewable, so be careful. i've had this happen to me with lacie and gtech drives and it was a horrible experience.  i had to use recovery software to pull all the data off safely.  secondly, if its a dual drive enclosure, your pretty much guaranteed it wont be seen outside the enclosure since they are usually in a RAID array in the inclosure.
