There are a few threads here that touch on this though I can't see a definitive answer:
If I have a Pegasus2 R8 with 3Tb drives, and I have a clone of this entire drive, can I:
With the unit shut down and disconnected from the computer, remove all 8 drives and replace them with new 4Tb (or other as detailed on Compatability Datasheet here https://www.promise.com/DownloadFile.aspx?DownloadFileUID=6110)?
Then if I power up the drive will the unit see this as a new blank array and automatically prepare it as a new RAID5 system?
At which point I would then migrate my cloned data back over to this drive and end up with increased capacity on this unit?
Are there steps to this that I'm unaware of, or is there anything that prohibits this from working?
Additionally, if the above does work, the original 3Tb drives would then be available for reformatting and reinstallation into other docking systems as blank repurposed drives, correct?
