What is SoftRAID for Mac?

SoftRAID is a software application for Mac that allows you to create and manage RAID arrays using your internal or external hard drives. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, and it is a way of combining multiple disks into a single logical unit that can improve performance, reliability, or both. The application supports different types of RAID levels, such as RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 4, RAID 5, and RAID 10, depending on your needs and preferences. You can use the program to monitor the health and performance of your disks, alert you of any potential problems, and repair any issues that may arise.

Despite providing useful features, SoftRAID is not compatible with some features of macOS, such as FileVault, Boot Camp, and Time Machine. Therefore, if you want to use these features, you should uninstall the app from your Mac.
