Requirements (before purchasing an internal, please consider): We have had several customers run into hardware incompatabilty problems installing internal drives.  This is a tricky business. It has taken us considerable time and effort to identify hardware and operating systems that will handle the large-capacity disks.  If you have ANY doubt, the best practice is to purchase an external unit.
  • Do you have a well-trained technician familiar with installing high-capacity internal SATA hard drives?
  • Do you have space in your existing server for a 3.5-inch drive bay and an available SATA port on your motherboard that will support the eGranary? (This is in addition to the operating system drive.)
  • Will your server's SATA port BIOS support such a large drive?  If it is an older server, you might need to also purchase a modern SATA controller add-in card.  Even newer machines may need to have their BIOS updated.
  • Will your operating system support a drive larger than 3TB?  Some will not.
  • You may need to disable RAID on your controller.
