Yes in the Finder. There is no need to support this in the application.

@softraid-support Then I’m afraid it didn’t work, as I said, the app continued to report the old name in the volume tile.

Post a SoftRAID tech support file. While a volume has its permanent initialized name, the published name (new) should show in the UI. Maybe this is a issue we can fix.

I see the errors about the volume not being open for IO. This is an APFS volume, but should work fine.

Are you just finder copying data to it? Or is it being used as a "home folder"? Circumstances will help me understand this. it looks OK otherwise.

Seems to be working fine now, other than the interface issues. My biggest challenge was setting up the drives as a RAID 5. I used an earlier public beta and it worked great, though changed my mind about having two volumes on the RAID. When I tried to initialize the disks, I hit some errors.

Now, I used the RAID 5 as a storage volume, which includes my iPhoto library. I used Carbon Copy Cloner to move data over from another drive, which took a solid day.

Starting point: RAID1 volume created with the name TEST-1, shows as TEST-1 in SoftRAID app and in the Finder (and Disk Utility and df).

Rename the volume in the Finder from TEST-1 to TEST.

Relaunch SoftRAID app, volume tile shows it as TEST-1 still while Disk Utility and df show it as TEST.

S

upport file attached.

Looks like a bug to me, I will see if it replicates, probably does, and get it fixed hopefully when we add APFS support.

@softraid-supportDownloading the new 11.3 public beta 2 as I type this...will report back with the results.
Or should I use the dev beta?

I have confirmation the Public Beta does not work. See what the build number is, the build version that does not work is: 20E5186d

@softraid-supportSame here, but my build number is 20E5186e. Bummer. Anything else that I can do to help, as far as testing goes? Any sense in trying the dev version?

Btw, I forgot, but can I then de-install the beta profile and upgrade to the official version of 11.3 when it is released, or will I have to wait until the next version after that to be back on the official release schedule?

I sure hope that Apple can get this fixed asap, as this is the only remaining reason that I have to keep my INTEL MBP 2018, at this point.

Interesting you have a different build number. When you installed, did you A) check that System Startup Security was set to allow third party?, B) did you even get the System Preference pop up dialog to go to Allow OWC?

If you did, paste the output to this terminal command also:

sudo kextload -v 6 /Library/Extensions/SoftRAID.kext

This will determine whether the driver is loadable.

"did you A) check that System Startup Security was set to allow third party?

Good questions...I am pretty sure that I have allowed third party in System Security, but don't remember specifically whether I was asked to allow OWC at the time I installed SoftRAID.

Here is the output from your command:

This is the same issue. The driver won't load because of this bug.

Thanks. The first couple questions were because you were the first to report this. Multiple users have confirmed this now, so it is public information.
