Installed beta 6 last night on my M1 MacBook Pro and everything is working great.

It didn't auto update me to the release version and time was getting close so I checked and updated manually.  For some reason it still launches the last beta on reboot but with the new driver.  Also it is saying I need to purchase a license and this is only a trial.  What about the license I already purchased which I cannot use anymore because of all the BigSur changes?  I really don't need the new features of 6.0 otherwise?  I thought we would get this upgrade for free?  What's the process here to get a working copy of something I already purchased which no longer works?  That and having helped during the beta development in identifying issues should be worth something eh?

Launch the 6.0.1 app and if all is OK, then delete the old app.

Use the upgrade page and see what your options are. Some upgrades are free, lets see where you are.

Remember to write down your original serial number so you don't have to search for it. My serial number wasn't included in my account information but at least it's on the bottom of my ThunderBay mini.

2015 will hae an upgrade cost.

Same with retail SoftRAID purchases.

Free upgrades are to all Thunderbay enclosure bundles since around June 20 2020.

 

With regards to activation, we do not prevent volumes from mounting, ever. You can much more easily activate/deactivate using SoftRAID now, without restarting. (the SoftRAID or Monitor menu's)

There is an occasional check for dual licenses, then we can alert you about this. But in no case will SoftRAID prevent you from accessing your volume.

@softraid-support I was able to upgrade from SoftRAID 5 XT to SoftRAID 6 XT for no charge since I’m running an OWC product that came with XT when I bought it.

It is timing, if you had bought over a year ago, it would be a charge upgrade. Thanks!

Every time I launch 6.0.1 it prompts me for my admin password and reinstalls the driver although it shows the driver 6.0.1 is already installed. How do I fix this?

EDIT: I seldom post without an edit.
