Pi & G-Technology 4TB G-DRIVE External Hard Drive

Wed Apr 24, 2013 11:12 am

I want to build a lo-cost server and want to use twin G-Technology 4TB G-DRIVE Professional External Hard Drives with the Pi as server running gphoto2, openswan and samba to stream and store jpeg files from a time lapse camera.
Does anyone have any experience with the pi using usb3 and these drives?

The reason I want this drive is that I already have several of them connected to my macs and I'm very happy with the way they perform.

I plan to process 1 Gb of data per day from the camera which is controlled by a remote pi using openswan and samba. This streams to the Pi server here at the office. I hope to eventually have 10 cameras streaming to the server and a rack of hard drives. It needs to be a fairly large set up as I get a lot of data as the cameras run 24hrs per day.

Hi bugloss,

Were you able to connect your 4tb hdd to Pie??
I'm planning to do something similar for my seagate 4tb hdd.
