Voyager: Hot Swapping

For FireWire 800 users, we recommend that the Voyager be the only device connected or the last device in the chain when hot-swapping drives. If you have other devices behind the Voyager, not all devices will remount after a drive is hot-swapped in the Voyager. When that occurs, a power-cycle will be needed for that device.

For eSATA users, a system reboot is required in order to recognize drive.
