Migrate from ThunderBay 4 (TB2) to ThunderBay 4 (TB3)
I'd like to upgrade my ThunderBay 4 chasis from TB2 to TB3. According to OWC, this will result in losing all the data:

"Removing the drives from the old RAID and putting them in a new RAID enclosure would still make it so that you need to reset the RAID unfortunately. This is a hardware issue with moving the drives rather than a software issue. I do apologize."

I thought SoftRAID could find the drives in any enclosure. This seems like a real pain.
That may be referring to one of the hardware RAID enclosures.

SoftRAID is totally flexible, yes you can move to another enclosure with no issues.
