What is volume optimization and how does it work?

When you select the optimization setting for a volume in SoftRAID, you are telling the SoftRAID driver what you will be primarily using that volume for. This allows the driver to fine tune its behavior—like the volume rebuild rate, and when status information is written to the disk—so that the driver will not interfere with your work.

For more information on the different types of optimization, see the “Volume optimization” help topic—available when running the SoftRAID application from the Help menu: Maintaining Disks and Volumes > Maintaining Volumes > Volume Optimization.
