Does SoftRAID support SMART over USB?
The technology to support SMART over USB has been with SoftRAID for many years. However, starting with macOS 10.14, Mojave, it has become more difficult to load the SMART USB drivers. Starting with macOS 10.15, Catalina, SMART drivers are blocked from loading at startup. In order to load these drivers, users need to disconnect all USB drives, and wait until their Mac is finished starting up before connecting USB drives to test for SMART. We are working on tools to enable SMART over USB without this limitation.
