I have an older R6 raid with a faulty drive, Seagate Barracuda 2TB, model ST2000DM001.  I cannot find that exact replacement drive but have found model ST2000DM006. Will they be ok?  Thanks

I had a look at that list but the two 2TB drives on that list are both discontinued.


Deskstar HDS723020BLA642

Toshiba DT01ACA200

Can you check this drive - Toshiba MG03ACA200 2TB availability?

You can use any other HDD's, but it might work or might not and it is highly recommended to use only the hardware listed in the Promise compatibility list which is tested for optimal performance.Also, Incompatible drives will work with the unit, however, we are not sure how long it will work, so It is advisable to install the compatible drive in the unit. Since the Pegasus first generation moved into legacy items and there are no further updates for the drives.
