Cannot delete Volume
Got a new ThunderBay and I'm trying to delete the volume so I can create another RAID volume/level.
SoftRaid won't delete the volume. No other application is using this volume. What's going on?
Also I have a lot of these "boot OSX" on Finder. Weird?
I think the driver is not installed, or the wrong version is installed.
Run this command and paste the text output (in the terminal.app)
sudo kextstat -b com.softraid.driver.SoftRAID
The Thunderbay came in as RAID 5 and I wanted to change.
I just updated to the latest SoftRaid 6.0.4.

I assume your volume is working, though.
These Boot OSX volumes are hidden partitions. They should not show up, they are harmless, but annoying. macOS X is supposed to suppress them, as they are protected volumes.
Did you do anything like repair your SoftRAID volumes with Disk Utility? Anything you can think of that is unique?
Yes, the volume is working. However, I did "Disable Safeguard" and "Erase" it and it works. Also, I tried "Removing Disk" but that did not work.
I have been having trouble with another volume so I tried diagnosing it before using Disk Utility by using First Aid but that didn't do anything.
What else can you recommend to resolve this? I would like to create a new volume asap.
Yes, I can manually unmount it but when I tried to "Delete" the volume I get the exact same error that the disk is being used by another application.
Any other advice?
Ok I did (restart, unmount then delete volume) but I still get this error
So one of the drives has an error? Its a brand new drive.
Ok I updated my Mac OS to 11.4 beta and now everything works! Weird!
