Convert a HFS+ raid to APFS?

Hi there - is it possible to use the Apple Disk Utility to convert a volume without losing the data when its a softraid voume? (made up of 4 x 4TB internal Aura P.12)

The process afaik with a normal single volume non raid is, unmount, and then you see the option 'convert to APFS'..

 

Any advice gratefully received!

 

Thanks

 

Paul

Not clear which you are asking so will answer both:

Only SoftRAID can covert a volume (RAID 0 or 1) to Apple format.

Disk Utility will not be able to convert an HFS SoftRAID volume to APFS. I actually have not tested this to see what will happen. I will add it to my list.
