How do I change the RAID settings on my G-RAID Studio(MAC)?
How do I change the RAID settings on my G-RAID Studio?

The G-RAID Studio uses a RAID utility tool to change the RAID settings between RAID 0 (performance), RAID 1 (protected) and JBOD. The G-RAID Studio ships RAID 0 from the factory. Note, changing the RAID settings will delete all data on the drive.

Download the Mac G-RAID Studio RAID configurator from the following link, G-RAID Studio Configurator. Ensure that the G-RAID Studio Thunderbolt is populated in the Device field and then click Configure.

You will then have a windows drop with the 3 available RAID options. RAID 0, RAID 1 and JBOD. Select which RAID setting you would like to configure to and then click Configure.
2-Configure-RAID-G-RAID-Studio

A warning message will appear to inform you will destroy all data on all disks. Then click Continue. Another message will appear again as your last chance. Then select OK.
3-First-Warning
4-Second-Warning

You will then get a message stating that configuration was successful.
5-Configuration-Successful

Next you will need to initialize the disk. Please refer to the following link for initializing the disk. After you initialize the disk, if you would like to restore the drive icon, please select the following link, Drive Icon.

Once you have initialized the disk, you are now ready to use the drive with the RAID setting you selected.
