SanDisk Professional G-Drive Desktop 2022 Edition

Recovery Sandisk G-Drive HDD

The Sandisk Professional G-Drive Desktop Drive is a high-capacity external hard drive that was meant to live on a desk and provide a localized means to secure data and expand the internal capacity of a laptop or desktop system. SanDisk’s chosen connection technology is USB-C, and a 1m long cable rated for 20Mbit transfers is included in the box with the drive and PSU. Currently, there are five capacity options for the new SanDisk G-Drive Desktop Drive that include 4TB, 6TB, 12TB, 18TB and 22 TB drives.

As the SanDisk Professional G-Drive is an HDD, not an SSD, you obviously can’t expect the same transfer speeds as an SSD provides. According to the promotional materials, the larger capacity drives are quicker, slightly, but the maximum speed that you should expect from the SanDisk Professional G-Drive Desktop Drive is up to 280MB/s read and 280MB/s write. As to the 12TB model, those numbers are quoted as closer to 250MB/s for both reading and writing.

For Mac users, the SanDisk Professional G-Drive comes already APFS-formatted, so connecting it to a MacBook Pro or a Mac mini is easy with no need to reformat, but Windows desktop owners will need to reformat the drive to an NTFS or exFAT format. SanDisk also says the SanDisk Professional G-Drive Desktop Drive is Time Machine compatible with Macs running macOS 10.15 or later.

With its durable design and excellent performance, the SanDisk Professional G-Drive can be a good tool for professional photographers and filmmakers who need to store immense amounts of data locally and users who need storage that transfers files quickly enough. But no matter how good they are, the SanDisk Professional G-Drives are also vulnerable to failures like all external HDDs. Data recovery from failed hard drives is a complex process, so the SanDisk Professional G-Drive owners will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to retrieve their critical data.
