Hi Jean-Christophe,

As per the compatibility list Pegasus R6 tested with 4 TB capacity drives as maximum. If you want, you can try it on your own.Since it is a first generation product and moved into legacy itmes, so there will not be any further update on the compatibility list.

Thank you.

Hi Venkatachalam,

I figure this out myself. This is why my question beyond offcialy supported drives.

Hi Jean-Christophe,

I too had the same question but to date no answer.

So when one of my other RAID devices had a failed drive I used the replacement 6TB drive as a test on the R6 and it seems to work.

My First Gen Pegasus R6 seems to recognise a Toshiba X300 6TB drive so I went ahead and got a set of six Tosh X300s.

Currently they are being synchronized at 30TB in a RAID 5 config.

Hope this helps.

Rgds.

Hi Jean-Christophe,

 

Thank you for the update. Since this drives are not tested by Promise we are not sure about the Performance and we recommend you to have a back up of your data to be in the safer side.

 

Thanks...

Hi Ian (and Jean-Christophe if you tried it),

I'm curious to hear about how have those 6 TB drives been working thus far. Any problems? It would be great to know if our first generation R6's can be further expanded!

I have an R4 using 4 8TB WD Reds WD80EFAX-68L without any issues. They were on sale at Best Buy cheap in an external USB 3 case. I cracked them open and installed the drives. My guess is the R6 would probably be fine.
