[Sticky] Running Big Sur (beta) on Intel Macs
@softraid-support Ok. This is the #1 reason I ordered my MacBook Pro when I did. I wanted to be sure to get one that still had Catalina on it. Do you have an estimate of when you'll have something that works in Big Sur? (no need to support APFS - just something that works with existing HFS+ RAIDs in Big Sur).
I wish I did, but we do not have a running version yet, so I cannot estimate how far it would be from release, whether imminent, or whether it would take deeper testing. Sorry!
Will a 1+0 RAID be recognized in Big Sur and run without monitoring? If something fails, will monitoring detect it after re-hooking it to a 10.14 or 10.15 system?
Yes and Yes. (Once we get the SoftRAID app running!)
We have added auto rebuilding to the Big Sur default driver. If you hook your disks to an older OS, yes, they will mount as normal etc.
There is a driver built into big sur, so your volume will still mount.
Any news on a new version for BigSur?
We have a beta for Big Sur!
SoftRAID 6 beta
It should work the same as 5.8.4, except function with Big Sur. email does not work, which we know, but you can create APFS volumes. There are release notes in the documentation folder.
Hello, how do I get SR beta for Intel Mac / Big Sur - the link here goes 404
Hi. The beta link is still broken.
