I have a Pegasus with 4 drives of 1 To each.

BUT I have only 3 To available and shown in Informations and even in Disk Utility.

How can I recover the 4 To?

Hi Jean-Jacques:

The Pegasus comes with a RAID5 array pre-configured, so you only see 3TB for use; the other 1TB is used by the RAID parity for data protection...

Thks very much

Should I understand that there is no way to have 4To?

If you delete the RAID5 - which will DESTROY any data that is there now - and create a RAID0 - you will get a 4TB volume.

BUT a RAID0 has NO data protection, and if one of the drives were to fail you would lose any data on the Pegasus...

OK that is clear. Thank You
