Mac only

Note: SoftRAID can convert HFS Apple RAID 0 and Apple RAID 1 volumes to SoftRAID format.

To convert AppleRAID volumes to SoftRAID just follow these 6 simple steps:

  1. Ensure your AppleRAID disks are connected and have been backed up
  2. Launch SoftRAID
  3. Select your AppleRAID volume tile from the rhs of the SoftRAID application
    (all volumes that are connected to and recognized by your system will be listed)
  4. Select the AppleRAID volume tile
  5. From the Volume menu, select “convert”; this will bring up a dialog box. Apple RAID volumes in APFS format will not enable the Convert option.
  6. Follow the directions in the dialog box.

Conversion takes around 10 seconds or less
