Dear Lee SG,

 

  Currently,VTrak E610f ONLY supports 4TB drives . Kindly peruse our VTrak E610f HDD Compatibility List for your perusal. See the link below

Hi Lee,

It all depends on which firmware version is on your E610.

If you have a "VTrak for Apple" unit with firmware version 10.6.2270 you will only be able to use a maximum drive size of 2TB.

If your unit has firmware version 3.36.02, you can use 3TB SAS drives - not SATA drives - due to a hardware limitation.

You can use any drive on the Compatability List found on the Promise site, but understand that this is an old discontinued product and we don't test new drives for it any longer. If you can not acquire any of the listed drives, try to find one that is a later relese of the same type - but Promise can not guarantee nor support that they will function correctly; you will have to try it yourself...
