SoftRAID 5.0.2

Forthright Mac OS X application designed to help you increase your computer's performance and identify disk failures and other errors.
Keeping a close eye on your drives is essential if you do not want to be taken by surprise by a disk failure. SoftRAID is an easy to use yet powerful app that can perform disk tests and point out the ones that have errors. In addition, you can use the app to quickly create and validate RAID volumes.

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.
