Okay to quit during rebuild?

Is it okay to quit during a RAID5 rebuild? After upgrading to Big Sur, we didn't give SoftRAID full disk access and would like to authorize it, which of course requires restarting the program. (ALSO: After the Bug Sur upgrade, and after our FCP libraries were updated for the new version, we got extensive beachballing and FCP kept crashing. Finally, the volume wouldn't mount.)

Yes a rebuild will just pick up where it left off. You do not need the SoftRAID application running during a rebuild either.

That's interesting! So it rebuilds on its own (so to speak, app not running) and will mount when finished?

And it's safe to give full disk access permission while this is underway, or should we wait 'til the rebuild is complete?

Thanks a bunch!

Sorry, one more thing:  As the rebuild will pick up where it left off, does that mean one could even reboot the Mac during the rebuild, SoftRAID handles even that so gracefully?
