SoftRAID was unable to create a file system on this volume.

I am constantly getting the error that SoftRAID is unable to create a file system on this volume and cannot generate any RAID volumes regardless of settings. I have Initialized all disks, verified all disks, and tried numerous combinations of settings but cannot get a RAID volume built. This is not the first time I have used this software and it used to work very well. Please help.

The problem is the driver was blocked by macOS. This is because we had to change our Developer Identifier, so the version you are running is signed by a different developer ID than what OS X has bundled with it.


Here is a fix:

@softraid-support Thank you so much, this seems to have resolved the problem, at least I was able to create the volume. Much appreciated. 😀
