For Windows users, please follow the steps listed below to launch Pegasus Utility and format the RAID:

1. Locate Pegasus Utility and launch it. You can use Microsoft Cortana to open it, or click on the Pegasus Utility shortcut on the desktop.

Launch with Cortana

2. After several seconds, the Dashboard menu appears. Use this menu later to view a summary of the device status. First you need to format the file system for the Pegasus32.

3.Click on the Logical Drive menu icon near the top of the menu. Notice in the middle of the menu a description of the RAID array that is already setup. The default setup is a RAID 5 using all the hard disks. If you want to change this, please see the product manual. Otherwise, to begin using the Pegasus32 right away, click on the Format button to begin the formatting procedure.

4.The formatting options appear in a new menu. You can type in a different name for the Volume or leave the default Promise Pegasus. Most users should use the Partition Type set to the default GPTFormat. The other Partition Type option, MBRFormat (master boot record) does not support Logical Drives greater than 2 TB. The Format Type is set to NTFS, the standard Windows file system. Click Format to start formatting the array.

5. In order to safeguard against unintended changes to the RAID setup or file system, the Pegasus32 requires that you confirm your decision to begin formatting the drives. To continue formatting, type confirm in the space provided and click on the Confirm button.

6. When the array is finished formatting, Windows will alert you that a New Volume has been installed. You can see the New Volume in Windows Disk Manager.
