Drive swap from external Thunderbay 4 (Mac with SoftRaidXT) to internal location (Windows 10 with SoftRaid Lite) Problem

New Member

Much to my dismay, my new PC lacks Thunderbolt 3 ports, only USB-C, and has rendered my Thunderbay 4 with a HFS+ SoftRaid 0+1 un-accessible. Today, upon the new release of SoftRaid for Windows, I removed the drives from the Thunderbay4 and situated them inside my PC, hoping to regain access to some old files.

SoftRaid Lite (Windows) acknowledges the presence of the drives, though does not properly group the 4 drives into a usable SoftRaid volume. 

Was hoping for some direction as to how to properly migrate these drives from a Thunderbolt 4-Mac setup to internal-Windows setup (ideally without reformatting).

Sorry, RAID 1+0/4/5 for windows is several months away at this point. We just released the equivalent of SoftRAID Lite for Windows.

We are working on it.


I guess you need to reformat the disks. If you could temporarily connect them to a Mac, then "Split" the RAID 1+0, you can at least have a RAID 0 volume on two disks.
