softRAID 6 with MacDrive 10 on Windows machine
I am considering purchasing an OWC raid enclosure for portable video editing, but all my rigs are Windows 10. I own MacDrive 10. Will MacDrive10 allow me to use softRAID 6 and RAID 5 on my Windows machines before the promised Windows update for softRAID6 later this year? Will there be a transfer speed/performance hit if this is my set up? Thanks in advance for any answers offered.
Neither MacDrive, nor SoftRAID for Windows support RAID 5 on Windows yet. Both will be released/updated later this year.
Perforamance is excellent with SoftRAID volumes, there is a slight hit because it is HFS, not NTFS, but not major.
@softraid-support Thank you for the information (although this makes purchasing an OWC enclosure a difficult endeavor at the moment, as I'd like to be able to use RAID 5 now, not some "possible" time in the future). Thanks again for the info.
