Why should I label my SoftRAID disks?
If you have many identical external disks, it is often easy to confuse one with another unless you add some sort of label to the outside of the disk. SoftRAID allows you to add the a label to each SoftRAID disk, a label which will appear in the SoftRAID user interface, log entries and email notifications. If the label you add to a disk in the SoftRAID is the same as the label you place on the outside of the physical disk, you can easily keep track of which physical disk corresponds to the one you have selected when you are using the SoftRAID application. This will help prevent you from inadvertently initializing the wrong disk or disconnecting it from your Mac when it is still in use.
