HI, i have some questions :

1. what the default format of the pc edition ? is it fat32 or ntfs?

2. as i checked promise website , there are 2 version pegasus3 : simply edition (for macos) and Pc edition (for windows). My question is can i just swap these between mac and pc ? i mean can i connect simply edition to pc (by using peasus driver for windows and format the drive to windows format) or can i connect pc edition to the mac (by formating the drive to osx format). Because what i'm thinking is that the connectivity is only depends on the driver and file format, so physically the pc and simply edition is just the same, am i right ?

3. if my motherboard doesn't have a thunderbolt port, can i just connect to my usb 3 type C ? if so, will i get any speed problem ?

Thanks

Hi Andi,

Please find the below inline answers for your questions.

1. what the default format of the pc edition ? is it fat32 or ntfs?

The default format for PC edition is NTFS.

2. as i checked promise website , there are 2 version pegasus3 : simply edition (for macos) and Pc edition (for windows). My question is can i just swap these between mac and pc ? i mean can i connect simply edition to pc (by using peasus driver for windows and format the drive to windows format) or can i connect pc edition to the mac (by formating the drive to osx format).

I have checked this with my next level and got the following updates.

The hardware on the P3 PC Edition and the P3 Symply Edition are the same. They are identical and you can use the Pegasus on either Mac or Windows. You'll just need to reformat for the respective OS. 


3. if my motherboard doesn't have a thunderbolt port, can i just connect to my usb 3 type C ? if so, will i get any speed problem ?

Make sure the computer port is a Thunderbolt 3 port. The port uses a USB Type-C connector, but there is a Thunderbolt icon next to the port. If there is no thunderbolt connecter then you unit may not be detected.

Kindly, go to the below link to download the product manual to know more about the product.
