My apologies if this is a stupid question but I am not a Mac person. Last year our office became a Windows house (long story) and while doing some digital clean up I came across 2 legacy R6's. (16 TB each). After we pull the data off of them via one of the old Macs (that data is going in the cloud), is there a way to be able to use them as external drives to our windows server or is it not with the effort? If so, does anyone make a firewire to USB A 3.0 adaptor or hub?

Hi Randy,

You can use the Pegasus R6 with your Windows machine if they have the  Inbuilt Thunderbolt ports . 

You can use the below list to know the windows Motherboards that we have tested .

You can also use external Thudnerbolt card to connect the Pegasus with your Windows machine . 

Note : Some of the external Thunderbolt cards might not work as we have not tested them.
