How to use a SoftRAID startup volume with High Sierra

If you're using High Sierra, and booting up from a SoftRAID volume, you'll need to follow the steps given in this forum post, since the macOS High Sierra Installer does not recognize SoftRAID volumes as valid startup volumes.

Verify vs validate on a single disk volume?
I have a single disk external drive in a non-OWC enclosure. I certified it and initialized it and created a single max-size volume on it all via SoftRAID. I just copied several terabytes of data onto the drive and now I want to check on the health of the drive before I put the disk in storage for a few weeks.

Is it better to verify or validate or both?

Is there even a difference between verify and validate when you have a single max size volume on a single disk?
With a single disk, a validate and verify are the same, a read across the entire disk or volume.
