None! SoftRAID and SoftRAID Lite are both fully functional during the 30 day trial period and will allow you to:
At the end of 30 days, you can purchase a license, enter your serial number, and keep using SoftRAID.
SoftRAID will run on any Mac built after 2007 which is running Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. (TRIM support for SSDs requires Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later.) Unlike many applications, SoftRAID has modest requirements for system memory and disk space.
You can use any disk which you attach directly to your Mac. This includes:
When your 30 day trial period has expired, most advanced features in SoftRAID or SoftRAID Lite will become disabled. You will still be able to use your SoftRAID volumes but you will not be able do things like test disks, create new volumes or have SoftRAID warn you of problems.
After your trial period has expired, SoftRAID or SoftRAID Lite will warn you that the trial period has expired each time you startup your Mac.
The SoftRAID Monitor will tell you how much time you have left. You can also run the SoftRAID or SoftRAID Lite application to see how many days are remaining in your trial period.
Of Course! You can convert your existing AppleRAID volumes and Disk Utility volumes to SoftRAID format and all your files will be preserved. You can even convert your startup volume to SoftRAID format.
Note: SoftRAID and SoftRAID Lite do not support converting Apple Fusion volumes. We think these volumes are less reliable as they offer zero protection from disk failure. If a disk fails with a Fusion volume, you will lose any data you haven't backed up separately.
Absolutely! We don't think you will want to go back to using the AppleRAID driver since no one at Apple has done active development on it since 2009, but if you do, SoftRAID can convert your volumes back. One of the features of SoftRAID is to seamlessly allow you to convert your volumes back and forth between SoftRAID volumes and ones which use the AppleRAID driver.
