Apple stopped actively working on AppleRAID in 2009 and removed full support for it in El Capitan (Mac OS X 10.11). If you ever had a problem with your AppleRAID volumes, you were stuck. Now, however, you can use those same volumes with SoftRAID - no need to copy all the files from one volume to another. You can just convert your AppleRAID stripe and mirror volumes and to SoftRAID volumes. Your volumes will be just as fast or faster and you can take full advantage of SoftRAID's renowned speed, reliability and support.
SoftRAID now in 4 Languages
SoftRAID version 5.5 will now automatically display in English, French, Spanish, or German (depending on your Mac's language settings).

SoftRAID supports RAID 4, RAID 5 and RAID 1+0 volumes
With the full version of SoftRAID, you can convert your AppleRAID stripe volume to a RAID 1+0 volume. Unlike your original AppleRAID stripe, with a RAID 1+0 volume, you won't lose all your files if one of your disks fails. SoftRAID can also create RAID 4 and RAID 5 volumes. We find RAID 4 best for SSDs (Solid State Disks) and RAID 5 best for HDDS (Hard Disk Drives).

With SoftRAID, you can test a disk before you start using it, monitor it for defects while you use it and protect yourself from disk failure with mirror (RAID 1), RAID 4, RAID 5 or RAID 1+0 volumes. You can even have the SoftRAID Monitor notify you via email whenever there is a problem.

The SoftRAID Monitor is always watching your disks and volumes
The SoftRAID Monitor is always running and visible in the menu bar whenever you have SoftRAID Lite installed. It is constantly checking your disks for errors and can warn you even before your disk fails.

How fast do you want to go?
With SoftRAID, you can create volumes with several different RAID levels. Any SoftRAID volume can use up to 16 disks. The disks can even be in different enclosures to give you more flexibility and higher performance. You can't get this level of flexibility and performance from hardware RAID.

SoftRAID RAID 1+0 Volumes
SoftRAID RAID 1+0 volumes have a great combination of speed, simplicity and reliability. A SoftRAID RAID 1+0 volume with 8 disks can be as fast as a stripe (RAID 0) volume with 4 disks. RAID 1+0 volumes are a great solution for critical data, servers and any professional application.

SoftRAID RAID 5 Volumes
SoftRAID RAID 5 volumes are faster than RAID 1+0 volumes. They are almost as fast as stripe (RAID 0) volumes and have the advantage of protecting you from disk failure. When one of the disks fails in a RAID 5 volume, you can still keep reading and writing files on that volume, without interruption. SoftRAID RAID 5 volumes are ideal for reading and writing large files. They are also good for small files which are frequently read but infrequently written.

SoftRAID Stripe (RAID 0) Volumes
Stripe (RAID 0) volumes give you the fastest possible read and write performance but have no protection from disk failure. If a disk fails in a stripe volume, you will lose all the files on that volume.

How safe do you want to be?
SoftRAID offers different levels of protection. A SoftRAID volume can protect you from disk failure, hardware failure and be part of a backup strategy to protect your business from theft, fire, flooding and other calamities.

SoftRAID RAID 5 Volumes
SoftRAID RAID 5 volumes protect you from disk failure. If a disk in a SoftRAID RAID 5 volume fails, you can keep using the volume normally.

SoftRAID RAID 1+0 Volumes
SoftRAID RAID 1+0 volumes offer greater protection than RAID 5 volumes. A SoftRAID RAID 1+0 volume with disks in two enclosures protects you from disk failure and power supply, enclosure or cable failures.

SoftRAID Mirror (RAID 1) Volumes
SoftRAID Mirror (RAID 1) volumes provide the greatest level of protection. A 3 disk mirror will continue to work even if 2 of the disks fail. If the disks are in different enclosures, your volume is also protected from power supply, enclosure or cable failures.

SoftRAID version 5 now bundled with OWC ThunderBay 4
OWC is now bundling SoftRAID version 5 with their ThunderBay 4 and ThunderBay mini enclosures. It makes a perfect pair, a reliable Thunderbolt 2 enclosure combined with state of the art RAID software.

SoftRAID can protect your Mac 3 ways
Most RAID products just protect you from losing files when a disk fails. SoftRAID does more. It can test a disk to make sure your disks are reliable before you use them. It can also detect when a disk is starting to become less reliable.

1) SoftRAID can keep you from using a disk which is about to fail
SoftRAID includes a powerful Certify Disk feature. When you Certify a disk, you write, then read, every sector of the disk - more than once. This is the type of testing which should be done on each disk at the factory - but it isn't.

2) SoftRAID can warn you when a disk is becoming less reliable
When you use SoftRAID, the SoftRAID Monitor keep track of which disks are experiencing errors and logs when those errors occur. This makes it easy to determine which disk is causing you problems.

3) SoftRAID can keep you working normally after your disk fails
If you use a SoftRAID mirror (RAID 1), RAID 4, RAID 5 or RAID 1+0 volume, you are protected from disk failure. If one of your disks fails, you can keep on working. None of your files will be lost.

New in SoftRAID 5.5:
New Features
* SoftRAID can now convert AppleRAID stripe (RAID 0) and mirror (RAID 1) volumes to SoftRAID format. When you convert an AppleRAID volume, all of your files are preserved. You can even convert Apple non-RAID volumes to SoftRAID.
* SoftRAID can now convert stripe (RAID 0) volumes to RAID 1+0. It can also convert some RAID 0 volumes to RAID 4 (requires a stripe unit size of 16 KB).
* The SoftRAID application and SoftRAID Monitor are now translated into French, German and Spanish.
* The user interface now conforms with the look of the Finder in El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.11.
* The SoftRAID Monitor menu bar indicator is now displayed in grey when the user has selected the "Graphite" appearance in the "General" panel of System Preferences.
* The SoftRAID application and volume icons are new.
* The SoftRAID Monitor now detects a bug in Mac OS X which causes disks to be ejected while in use. When this occurs, a dialog is displayed giving the user instructions which can help prevent this bug from reoccurring

Bug Fixes
* Fix kernel panic bug which occurs when you remove 2 disks from a RAID 5 volume.
* SoftRAID now prevents users from removing disks from RAID volumes in situations where it might result in data loss.
* Fixed a bug which could cause the SoftRAID Monitor to display a dialog indicating that the user was in evaluation mode even when a serial number had been entered.
* Fixed a bug which caused two warning dialogs to appear the first time SoftRAID is run, both of which say that SoftRAID can be used for 30 days in trial mode. This version only displays one of these dialogs.
* Fixed a bug which caused some entries in the SoftRAID.log file to be garbled or incomplete. This would occur when two or more entries were being written simultaneously.
* Rebuild and validate operations now start instantly regardless of volume optimization setting. They run for the first 15 seconds as if the volume were optimized for workstation before using their actual optimization setting.
* The "missing disk" string in the volume tile is now blue for RAID 1 volumes which contain at least 1 in-sync secondary disk. If there are no in-sync secondary disks, the string is red.
* Prevented any disk which has a progress bar from being added to a volume or used to create a new volume.
* The SoftRAID application no longer deletes the SoftRAID.log file when you select Uninstall SoftRAID from the Utilities menu.
* Fixed a bug which allowed a user to shrink a volume to a size smaller than that which is displayed in the Resize Volume window.
* Fixed a bug which caused SoftRAID to display Xsan volumes. SoftRAID would also display an error dialog when it couldn't read from the Xsan volumes.
* Fixed several bugs which affected installing or uninstalling the SoftRAID driver on volumes other than the startup volume.
* Fixed a bug which prevented the SoftRAID application from automatically updating the driver on bootable volumes other than the current startup volume.
* Fixed a bug which prevented the SoftRAID Monitor and SoftRAID application from connecting to the SoftRAID upgrade server.
* Removed the help button from all dialogs which are displayed before the user logs in. The Apple help system does not work until the user logs in so these buttons were non- functional.
* Fixed a bug in the SoftRAID application which caused tiles for AppleRAID volumes to incorrectly indicate that they were missing disks.
* Fixed a bug which could cause the "Launch SoftRAID" menu item in the SoftRAID Monitor menu to launch the incorrect copy of SoftRAID.
* Change SoftRAID application so it no longer creates an error entry in the system.log file (the entry was: "Could not find imaged named 'SR_AppHeaderText'.").
* Fixed a bug which caused the SoftRAID application to stop working if one or more of the volume names included kanji characters.
* Fixed a bug in the SoftRAID driver which could cause the driver event queue to become full. This happened when many degraded volumes were present and would cause a error dialog to appear which said that the driver event queue was full.
* All versions of SoftRAID now use the ThunderBay volume icons if all the disks for a given volume are in a ThunderBay enclosure. Icons only change when a volume is first created.
* Fixed a bug which caused Tech Support Reports to not include crash logs.
* Disabled serial numbers for purchases which have been refunded or upgraded.
* Fixed a bug which caused the SoftRAID Monitor to crash at launch or when a new serial number was entered

System Requirements:
- Intel, 64-bit processor
- OS X 10.6.8 or later
- Support for TRIM commands on SSD's require OS X 10.7.5 or later
