What do the activity LED colors mean on my G-DOCK?

There are two Activity LEDs on the front of the G-DOCK unit, with one located next to each drive bay. There are also Activity LEDs on the G-DRIVE ev cartridges. All of these lights give visual indications about how the Evolution Series is performing.

Color Code for the G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt
