I just received my Pegasus3 R6 24TB Raid 5 array. Does your Pegasus hard drives make a lot of noise while you’re archiving video in FCPX? Is this normal? I was archiving some 4K video which archived fine but, the hard drives made a lot of noise while doing so routerlogin. I'd like to add, the drives are quiet during native playback of the archive. I would sincerely appreciate it if you would let me know. 

Thank, HenryHunter

Please confirm, is that  hard drives makes noise only when you archiving video in FCPX or any fie format?
