Hi,

I bought Express 42M with 4*2To samsung 970 SSD.

I use Macpro 2013 with Mojave and an apple thunderbolt adapter.

-

With softraidLite XT, I Initialized the 4 drives before to create a new 8To volume with Raid0.

Everithing seem to be fine, I have A 8To Volume.

But when I want to copy a file into this volume, MacOs ask me the admin password and all apps who want to acces to this drive say to me "read only"

Can you help me,

Thanks.

"Get Info" on the volume and change the ownerships to "read/write". We make an OS X call for creating volumes and the settings are temporarily set as read only when the OS X is setting up the volume, creating a spotlight index, etc. Then it should automatically change to read/write. Sometimes this last step does not happen. We are investigating this.

So just change it manually via "get info".

Thak you for the answer.

In mojave, On the "get infos" panel, I check a box called :"ignore the information in this volume" to solve this admin password request

(I never seen this box, before I was on El Capitan.)

Everything work fine and was very easy for the setup.

Thank you.

We discovered this problem happening more often with Mohave, so in the next version of SoftRAID, 5.7.1, we will completely prevent this from happening.

Sounds good, as a new user it made me nervous.
Specially when I have read about the quarantine of the app, and noticed that is was. But now it's up and running, and wow it's fast!
