Any Kind of RAID is Easy with SoftRAID

See also Software RAID Performance with SoftRAID 5 as well as recent tests of the OWC Thunderbay Mini using SoftRAID.

SoftRAID makes creating RAID easy: just select the drives, choose the desired total capacity, click—done. No need to think about partitioning or other nerd stuff.

See Initializing with New Drives page in my review of the OWC Thunderbay Mini for some examples.

If the drives are brand-new and thus never formatted, first select the drive(s) and then choose Disk => Initialize.

Shown below is how easy it is:

  1. Select the 4 drives, then Volume -=> New.
  2. Choose the type of RAID you’d like (RAID-5 is ideal with 4 drives), enter the desired volume size (this is the way to make more than one volume without having to think about partitioning).
  3. Cick Create.
