Hard Disk Manager itself and all HDM-based products (Drive Copy, Disk Wiper, Partition Manager, Backup & Recovery and Migrate OS to SSD) have RAID support.
We support all types of RAID (hardware and software) on one condition: your RAID should be set up and be recognized by your operating system as a single disk.
When working in Windows environment there is no difference between hardware and software RAID (except software RAID is slower as software RAID setup’s push the RAID controlling duties onto the CPU). However, for some operations reboot is required to perform changes and here you might encounter difficulties because your software RAID might not be recognized as RAID during reboot – this means you can’t perform operations on it (it will result in error). We highly recommend using hardware RAID array.
File System Driver (FSD) products for Mac (such as NTFS for Mac and ExtFS for Mac) should work with RAID volumes if it’s supported and detected correctly by OS X.
If you encountered difficulties when setting up your SATA controller to RAID mode for copy/migration – read this article related to SATA controller mode issues.
