Hi there, 

   I’m an editor and have a Pegasus3 R4 and was hoping to increase the capacity as we are now shooting a lot more 4K vision. Is it possible to put 4 x Seagate IronWolf NAS 12TB 3.5 inch SATA HDD, ST12000VN0008 hardives into the unit and run as a RAID5 configuration? Or an equivalent Toshiba brand drive? 

Regards Sally
