The Pegasus3 R6 comes preconfigured in RAID 5 and supports a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and 50, each of which offers speed, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. Please be aware that RAID 0 does not support hot-swapping. Included is a 3.3' 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable and a power adapter. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty, with 24/7 web and chat support also being available. Also included is a free license of ChronoSync Pegasus Edition Backup Software for macOS.

Can drives of different capacities be mixed in this enclosure?
