Hi all

I'm switching from the Pegasus r6 to a Pegasus2 r6 (because the first Version doesn't support Apples newest M1 chips) and would like to ask you guys, if i can put all 6 hard disks in the pegasus2 without formating? Do i still need to format in the new Case, even its pegasus? 

I have all Data online backuped, but to organize a 30TB Harddisk to copy all files from the old case, then format in the new case sounds like a challenge. 

Any advice is welcome, thanks a lot :)

Hi Safak,

The Pegasus1 drives should be recognozed by the Pegasus2. The Volume should mount without issues.

Make sure Monterey is given permission to use 3rd party drivers and that the driver is allowed to run in the Securuty fab of Settings.
