What happens when I pull the Thunderbolt cable out of the host or the G-RAID Studio while the host is still powered on?

By disconnecting the Thunderbolt cable from either the host or the G-RAID Studio will cause an error that the disk was not ejected properly, this will also spin down the drives.  If you do need to disconnect the Thunderbolt cable, G-Technology suggests to safely eject the G-RAID Studio first. Please see the following for safely removing your product.
