Apple RAIDs

Top  Previous  Next

OS X can create several software RAIDs from disks connected to a Mac computer: RAID1 (Mirror set), RAID0 (Stripe set), and Concatenated disk set.

Apple RAID0 example

R-Studio automatically detects disks from Apple RAID sets and creates their virtual RAIDs automatically. At the same time, R-Studio gives access to the individual members of the Apple RAID sets (hard drives and images).

Broken Apple RAIDs in R-Studio

If recognized members of a Apple RAID are added to R-Studio (including disk images), R-Studio automatically adds them to their respective Apple RAIDs.

When Apple RAID members are such damaged that R-Studio cannot recognize them as members of broken Apple RAIDs, you may add them manually. Right-click the required Apple RAID, select Add missing disks on the context menu and select the required object(s) on the Add missing disks dialog box.
