New RAID 5 Volume says "unable to create file system" and won't mount
I have a new Express 4M2 with three 2TB Samsung EVO Plus SSDs inside. Trying to do a RAID 5. Everything seems good until make the volume; it says "Unable to create file system." The volume won't mount. When I hit "validate" on it nothing seems to be happening after I enter my system password.
If you are getting that message, probably you need to enable full disk access with SoftRAID.
Open System Preferenes/Security/Privacy. Scroll down to full disk access. "Drag and drop" the SoftRAID application into that window.
that will fix this.
Thanks. I did that, restarted, and still get the same error.
Post a SoftRAID Tech support file and I can take a look.
Here you go.
I chatted with OWC tech support and they suggested disabling my T2 chip, of which this machine has none.
I also noticed after I uninstalled and reinstalled SoftRAID that I got a popup saying the installation of the driver failed. But then when I restart the application it says driver v5.8.4 in the corner.
