  1. Hey man, thanks for this. I’m kinds stuck in another situation! more than 1 disk failure. I was in the middle of changing desktop setup, and cleaning up the dust. I opened one of the hard drive bays by mistake (STUPID) and saw a lot of dust. and I was putting them back they turn red. and cleaned more, so 5 out of the 6 drives turned red. And when I opened the Pegasus utility it shows that 5 out of the 6 drives Status is dead. and all show the right capacity as 2 TB except for one that shows 0 bytes.

    This is obviously making me nervous, as everything I have and have been working on, including clients work is there. with no other backup. And I’m wondering if there’s a solution to retrieve or fix this.

    I appreciate an urgent response,

    Thank you,

  2. Thanks for this simple tutorial! The Pegasus manual and other instructions online require a rocket science degree. Only difference is my rebuild is taking much longer; it’ll probably be about 24 hrs to rebuild one 4TB drive.
