    Does anyone have the G-RAID w/ Thunderbolt?

    I have the 4TB version configured to RAID 1. I am trying to use it as my primary iTunes drive hooked up to my iMac. I want it to be able to serve my iTunes library via Home Sharing at all times.

    The problem I am having is that when my iMac goes to sleep the drive shuts down and won't turn back on without manually pressing the power button. Then, when I do power it up via the power button the drive won't automatically remount. I have to remove the thunderbolt cable and plug it back in to get my iMac to recognize that the drive is there.

    Obviously this won't work as a viable solution for serving up iTunes to my Apple TV or MacBook Air.

    Any thoughts?

    Defective drive.

    Drive should turn on after waking up. Contact G-Tech.
