Security and Technology Ramblings…

Picked up four 250Gb USB drives today… Figured I would set them up as two RAID one drives for my mac.

As it turns out the RAID one config native to OSX is rather “sucky”. It continued to fail and would not update the drives if they fell out of sync.

I found a rather cool piece of software, called SoftRAID (http://www.softraid.com). It worked extremly well and seems to be doing the job just fine.

It does not support RAID five though. Though the developer stated that it should soon.
