SoftRAID volume not mounting after OS X 10.13.2 updated

New Member Customer

I just installed the 10.13.2 update from Apple and now my SoftRAID volume won't mount. When I go into the SoftRAID application, the hard drives are listed and the RAID 5 configuration is shown, but the volume is listed as "unmounted". Right clicking on the volume and selecting "Mount" moves it the "mounting" state, but then it reverts back to "unmounted".

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling SoftRAID, but even after that I am still experiencing the issue.

I have a RAID 5 set up configured with 5 Western Digital 6TB drives in a StarTech enclosure connected to a Sonnet using the generic AHCI Controller.

Hardware Details:
macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C88)
Mac Pro (Mid 2012)
2 x 3.06 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
64 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 5770 1 GB
SoNNeT Tempo PCI-Express 2.0 TSATA6-PRO-E4 with 4 External eSATA Ports
StarTech S355BU33ERM USB 3.0/eSATA 5-Bay enclosure
5x WD Red Pro 6TB NAS HDs

size 24TB, available 21.1TB, HFS+ (journaled)
RAID 5 safeguard enabled
no errors

If all the disks have a link to the volume, the volume shows the file system and the space used and available, then it is OK, just has some Directory damage.

Try running Disk Warrior. It is the best app for repairing damaged volumes.
