Upgraded to 6.1. Cant see disk Volume any more

New Member

Hi Support crew.  Thought you might want to know about this.


I have a SSD in a Mercury Elite Pro Mini drive.
I was using SoftRAID 6.0.5 and it worked fine.  I could see both the Disk and the Volume.
After updating to SoftRaid 6.1, I can see the Disk in the list of Disks, but the Volume is missing from the list of Volumes.

The Volume is still visible on my desktop, and through other apps such as Disk Utility.  I can still read and write to it.  So it is still functional.  But it's odd that it disappeared inside SoftRAID.

If I try to initialize the disk from within SoftRAID, I get the message "Disk Not Supported".   (Very odd considering it is an OWC product....)

Can you attach a SoftRAID tech support file, so i can look?


Per support, we only support RAID in XT in enclosures that are "RAID ready", not the single disk enclosures.

I've a similar issue - upgraded from 6.0.5 to 6.1 and key volumes have disappeared. My boot disk is on an external SSD drive. 

Both the external SSD and internal fusion was showing as a volume prior to 6.1 and now, it is showing some unmounted "Preboot, Recovery, VM".

I've attached screen shot on 6.0.5 & 6.1.

Attach a support file and I will make sure it is being worked on. There is still more work being done on the SoftRAID user interface.
