Uncomplicated user interface for analyzing the status of the disks currently connected to your Mac
Within the SoftRAID main window, you are able to visualize the connected disks in the left panel, and the available volumes in the right one. The app is able to identify hard disks, SSDs, but also external drives connected via USB, Thunderbolt, FireWire, and so on.
For each disk, you are able to see the name, model, size and available space, the format, the SMART status, the number of reallocated sectors, the i/o requests or errors, and the hours of use. The same area will include an alert message in case the disk is predicted to fail.
Check the RAID level and integrity of your volumes
At the same time, SoftRAID is able to detected all available volumes, and lets you know which disk is used in each case. This way you can see if a volume is using a disk that presents errors. You will be able to see the volume name, size, free space, type, if it is a RAID volume, when it was created, when it was last validated, the volume ID, and the i/o requests and errors.
Test disks and validate volumes without having to deal with complex tools
SoftRAID is a great tool to have around if you want to check if all sectors from a disk are readable: if the app detects any errors the disk might fail in the near future. Furthermore, SoftRAID also enables you to validate the volumes associated to your disks.
