Question about GTech G-RAID 500 (90700501) 500 GB Hard Drive
The G-Raid drives use RAID-0 which splits data across both internal drives, so unfortunately the remaining drive will not be able to be used to recover any files as it will only have fragments of each file on it - the other fragments having been lost on the faulty drive. Also, you will need to contact G-Tehcnology to get a replacement drive - the drives used (from memory I think they are Hitachi) have special firmware on them and other drives will not be compatible and you'll start getting strange errors.
G-RAID drives are designed for high-throughput work like video editing, not for redundancy - they should be treated as a single drive where if the data is important you have a copy of it on another drive. Keeping data on only one drive is not a back-up, it's a problem waiting to happen. Sorry I couldn't give you any good news.

What RAID configuration is this unit, is it RAID 0, 1 or 5 etc.?
How many hard dives are in this RAID system?
Depending upon the number of hard drives in the RAID configuration, and if it is configured for fault tolerance, then you only need to replace the faulty hard drive (same size/capacity) and when the system boots up again it will rebuild the data on the on the new drive. Once that is completed then the system will run at normal speed.
