I haven't been able  to find any disk compatibility lists for the Pegasus32 R8.  I am migrating disks from a Pegasus2 R6.  They were on the R6 supported list, but now I can't find any supported disks list for it either.

Also wondering if anyone has any experience using the Seagate Ironwolf (Pro, non-pro) 16 TB disks.

I do not have an answer, but seeing that the 10TB IronWolf HDD is compatible, I would expect the rest of the range to be too.

If you have already acquired the 16TB drives, then shut down the Peg and swap all the drives and see if you can successfully configure them. If the answer is yes, then you should be good to go. PLEASE REPORT BACK HERE.

How do you intend to increase the capacity without having to copy everything off the current R8 storage?

The Pegasus32 R8 is a new unit, so I just copied the data from the R6.

8 Seagate 16 TB Ironwolf Pro disks work just fine.  They take the R8 to its maximum 128 TB capacity, with 112 TB available in RAID 5.
