I have a new Express 4M2 with three 2TB Samsung EVO Plus SSDs inside. Trying to do a RAID 5. Everything seems good until make the volume; it says "Unable to create file system." The volume won't mount. When I hit "validate" on it nothing seems to be happening after I enter my system password.

If you are getting that message, probably you need to enable full disk access with SoftRAID.

Open System Preferenes/Security/Privacy. Scroll down to full disk access. "Drag and drop" the SoftRAID application into that window.

 

that will fix this.

Thanks. I did that, restarted, and still get the same error.

Post a SoftRAID Tech support file and I can take a look.
