Just opened my brand new Promise Pegasus 32 R8 80TB drive and connected it to my new MacPro, hoping to configure it to a RAID 10, but it won't allow me to do anything at all in the setup wizard because, I suspect, it's syncing in the background. From reading the other posts on here, this sounds like it could take FOREVER before it's done, and then once I reconfig it to a RAID 10, it will take forever, again? Is there any way to stop the sync process so I can configure the drive as a RAID 10, then start syncing it? I've already set everything to "high" for the background activities, but it's at 1% and it's been about two hours thus far. So roughly in 198 hours, or 8.5 days, it should be done and then I can start it over again?!
p.s. it also shows up at 70GB versus 80GB on the mac finder, should I be concerned? Running Mac 10.15.2 on a new MacPro 28-core machine.
