7 Chapter 2 - LCD Display 2.2 MAXProtect RAID 1 Usage MAXProtect RAID 1 mode provides redundant data protection using the live activity backup/data protection that mirrors your data on two drives. What does it mean when the orange LED is lit on my Newer Technology GMAX mini in MAXProtect mode? If there are no red lights indicating a bad drive, the GMAX mini is in rebuild mode, synchronizing the drives due to a recoverable error. What happens if a drive fails in my Newer Technology GMAX mini in MAXProtect mode? If a drive fails in your GMAX mini, your data is still safe and usable as long as you have your RAID configured as a RAID 1 MAXProtect mode. However, it is very important to replace the defective drive as soon as possible to regain your redundant data protection. If you choose to remove the bad drive from your GMAX mini, the following scenarios will apply to the usage of your good drive: IMPORTANT! ALWAYS HAVE GMAX MINI POWERED ON WITH GOOD DRIVE INSERTED BEFORE REPLACING BAD DRIVE. IF the GOOD DRIVE is kept installed into GMAX mini: Data will be fully accessible. Data will be rebuilt once the bad drive is replaced. IF the GOOD DRIVE is removed from GMAX mini and connected to a computer via another enclosure, or directly via a SATA connection: All data will be fully accessible and any changes will be reflected when inserted back into the GMAX mini. Data, including any changes, will be rebuilt once the bad drive is replaced. IF the GOOD DRIVE is removed from GMAX mini and then re-inserted before the bad drive is replaced: Data is fully accessible and will begin rebuilding immediately upon insertion of replacement drive. MAXProtect RAID 1 mode LCD Display & activity light overview
8 Chapter 2 - LCD Display 2.3 MAXPerform RAID 0 Usage MAXPerform RAID 0 mode provides the fastest possible speed to your storage array. The trade off of this speed is that there is no data redundancy / protection. What happens if a drive fails in my Newer Technology GMAX mini in MAXPerform mode? If a drive fails in your GMAX mini when it is set to MAXPerform mode, you will need to replace the defective drive to continue using your GMAX mini. Data existing on the GMAX mini prior to the drive failure WILL NOT be recoverable. MAXPerform RAID 0 mode LCD Display & activity light overview
9 3 ASSEMBLY 3.1 Replacing Hard Drives Chapter 3 - Assembly To set up a new RAID, install new hard drives, or if you have had a failure of a hard drive, you will need to either install new or replace existing hard drives. If you have an existing RAID and need to remove a hard drive: Should one of the hard drives fail, the corresponding HDD # LED will light up red and an alarm will sound. If only one drive is defective, the data can still be accessed if the Guardian MAXimus mini is configured as a RAID 1, but we strongly suggest that you replace the faulty drive mechanism immediately to assure continued backup and data safety. Once you replace the faulty drive, the Guardian MAXimus mini will automatically copy or rebuild the data from the existing drive to the new drive. If your Guardian MAXimus is configured as a RAID 0, data cannot be recovered. Should both drives fail at the same time, the data will be lost and the system cannot be accessed again until the drive(s) are replaced and a new RAID is set up. While this is unlikely, OWC always recommends a separate backup in a different location for more comprehensive data protection. To change a hard drive in the Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini: 1. Check the HDD # LED and replace the faulty drive(s) using the instructions on the next page. The red LED indicates the defective HDD. The power does not have to be turned off when replacing the drive(s). 2. A few seconds after installing the new drive, the corresponding LED will turn green. 3. The RAID array will be rebuilt automatically. During the rebuild process, the rebuild LED will blink orange. Rebuilding the RAID array will take several hours, depending on drive capacity. NOTE: We recommend not turning the power off during the rebuild process, but if it is interrupted it will continue rebuilding the data as soon as the power is restored.
10 Chapter 3 - Assembly To remove the drives, turn the Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini around to the rear and remove the hard drive cover plate by unscrewing the 2 Phillips screws from the top corners. Once you have removed the back of the Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini, the two 2.5 hard drives are held into the chassis using friction fit trays. To remove the two drives and their trays, you need to pull the trays out of the back of the enclosure using the silver metal tabs in the center of the drive tray. To keep vibration to a minumum, the silver trays are a very tight fit. Use constant, gentle pressure when removing and installing. Turn the drive tray over and you will see 2 Phillips screws that are holding the drive into the tray. Remove those two Phillips screws. Then. Slide the hard drive out of the drive tray, pushing the drive out of the tray. Replace the drive in the reverse order, insert the screws and then place the drive tray assembly back into the enclosure. Replace the back access cover and reinsert the 2 Phillips screws you removed to take the back cover off.
11 Chapter 4 - Formatting 4 FORMATTING 4.1 IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU PLAN ON USING YOUR DRIVE TO BOOT ON A G3, G4, OR G5 SYSTEM If you purchased a preconfigured Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini, your new external hard drive has been formatted for the Macintosh as a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) volume, using the GUID* Partition Table scheme. This means that your new drive is ready to use immediately out of the box if you have an Intel based Macintosh computer. For your new OWC external hard drive to provide boot compatibility (meaning you wish to run the operating system from the external drive) with Power-PC based computers (G3, G4, G5) using Mac OS X, you will need to repartition/format the drive and change the partition mapping from GUID to APM (Apple Partition Map**). If you do not plan to use your new external drive as the start up drive, you do not need to perform this procedure, your new drive will work as formatted for normal external storage use and step by step instructions to do so are covered on the next pages of this manual. Notes: *GPT (GUID Partition Table) - To use the disk as a boot volume on an Intel-based Mac, or to use the disk as a non-boot disk with any Mac with Mac OS X version 10.4 or later. **APM (Apple Partition Map) - to use the disk as a boot volume on a Power-PC based Mac, or to use the disk as a non-boot disk with any Mac. If you are using Mac OS X or earlier, you must repartion and format the hard drive using this method. Apple also has an article about repartitioning, available at: IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU PLAN ON USING YOUR DRIVE WITH A PC SYSTEM Please turn to section 4.3 and proceed from there to reformat your drive to use with a PC.

21 Chapter 5 -Troubleshooting & Tips 5 TROUBLESHOOTING & TIPS 5.1 Troubleshooting Some of the most simple problems can be traced to power, or connectivity issues. Begin your troubleshooting by verifying that power is plugged into the external storage solution, and if connected to a power strip. Make sure that the power is turned on at the switch on the strip. Then, simply verify that your cables (both ends!) are properly plugged into the computer and storage solution. If they are, and the storage solution is still not working properly, try connecting to another interface such as the USB connection and see if the device works properly. 5.2 Tips To properly dismount any connected hard drives from your computer, you need to follow a few simple steps. For Macintosh systems: For the safe removal of your drive and to assure that no data is lost, always eject or unmount the drive from your operating system before powering off. There are two methods to umount disks with Macintosh systems. Either drag the icon for the hard disk you wish to dismount to the trash can, or click the eject icon next to the hard disk name in under the DEVICES tab in the sidebar in any finder window. For Windows systems: 1. Go to the System Tray (located in the lower right corner of your screen). Click on the Eject icon (a small green arrow over a hardware image). 2. A message will appear, detailing the devices that the Eject icon controls. i.e. Safely remove... Click on this prompt. 3. You will then be given the following message. Safe to Remove Hardware. It is now safe to unhook the Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini. General information: Do not expose the product to water or humid conditions. Do not cover the enclosure s ventilation holes. In order for the computer to access volumes larger than 2TB, both the hardware and Operating System need to support large volumes (e.g.: Windows Vista 32bit/64bit or Mac OS X 10.4 and above).
22 Chapter 6 - Appendix 6 APPENDIX 6.1 FAQ Q: How do I format my storage solution? A: OWC has detailed instructions online for most popular operating systems, located at: Q: What file system should I choose when formatting my drive? A: This will depend on how you want to use the drive, but in general, we recommend: Mac OS X - HFS + (Mac OS Extended) Windows 2000/XP/Vista For cross-platform compatibility, FAT32 is compatible, but single file sizes are limited to 4GB. Other options using 3rd party software exist but are not covered here. Q: Why does the LED indicator for one of the drives light up red? A: A red LED is a warning indicator, you either have a failed hard drive, or no hard drive is installed in the drive bay. Usually the red LED will be accompanied by an alarm. Replace the hard drive to correct the problem. Q: Why does the LED indicator to the right of the drive activity lights light up orange? A: If the orange LED is lit, a rebuild is performing or the device is being reformatted. Normally this indicates that you had a failed hard drive, or data was written out of sync and the rebuild is correcting the error. Q: How many drives can fail before I lose my data? A: Since this is a RAID-1 Mirrored solution, you can have 1 drive fail without losing any data. If both hard drives fail, you will lose your data. The Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini will alert you using it s LED lights on the front of the enclosure that a drive has failed by turning RED. Replace that hard drive immediately to avoid losing data. Q: Will the hard drives spin down when my computer goes into to sleep or stand-by mode? A: Yes, they will spin down to save energy. It will take about 30 seconds to access your data after being in sleep or stand-by mode. 6.2 About Data Backup To ensure that your files are protected and to prevent the loss of your data, we strongly suggest that you keep two copies of your data: One copy on your Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus mini and a second copy on either your internal hard drive or another storage medium, such as an optical backup, or on a second external hard drive.
