NEW DISK? TEST IT FIRST WITH CERTIFY

Find out if your new disk is bad with SoftRAID's Certify, which tests every sector on the disk (because the manufacturer doesn't). SSD Better to do this before you put data on it! Watch out though, it's destructive, so don't do this if your disk has data you need on it already.

FAILING DISK?

HDD Find out if disks are failing or about to fail—SofRAID warns you in advance if there are any problems with your disks, whether you have HDDs or SSDs

24/7 DISK FAILURE WARNING VIA EMAIL

SoftRAID will email you right away if it finds any problems with your disks.
(Email notifications not available with SoftRAID Lite)

CHECK YOUR DATA OR VOLUME AT ANY TIME

Verify your volume's data (non-destructive) or Validate a volume to ensure it works properly

DATA CHANGED?

SoftRAID rebuilds volumes with changed data faster than other RAID products.

REPURPOSING AN OLD DISK?

You can use Certify on any existing disk to check if it has developed bad sectors. Remember, don't do this on a disk with data you want to keep unless you've backed it up first
