[Sticky] Running Big Sur (beta) on Intel Macs
This thread is for posts/discussions on your experience running Big Sur with SoftRAID.
Much of Big Sur is covered by Apple Developer non-disclosure, so please do not post anything that is not public information. (new features not announced, etc.)
The bundled SoftRAID default driver mounts volumes in Big Sur, but we need to update the SoftRAID Application/driver to manage SoftRAID volumes. We will offer a beta version of SoftRAID that supports Big Sur as soon as we can, possibly in July.
We would love to hear experiences at that time of any problems that you discover.
Do not post anything about the SoC processor machines on this thread, we cannot make it public. But if you are a registered developer and wish to discuss SoC based Macs, we have some ability to discuss such items in private.
Now that macOS 11 Big Sur has been released to developers, how quickly will you be researching and testing its ability to use APFS formatted HDDs using SoftRAID? Lots of us have been waiting for this.
We are working with Apple to resolve a couple important issues, particularly performance and encryption.
We will get blamed with the 50% performance drop from HFS, not Apple.
You had the SoftRAID 6 beta? then use the same link. Or to apply send an email to support at SoftRAID.
Is it right to assume that SoftRAID Pro 6.0 b37 is not the beta intended to install on Big Sur!!?!
