Note: We advise you only to download the SoftRAID software on a Mac, not a mobile device
The latest version of SoftRAID for ThunderBay and SoftRAID Lite for ThunderBay is version 5.6.1. It is the version we recommend for all users and is required if you plan to run macOS 10.12 Sierra. Read the release notes for SoftRAID 5.6.1 here
Note: SoftRAID for ThunderBay and SoftRAID Lite for ThunderBay are designed to run on disks inside a ThunderBay enclosure and will not work fully* on disks not in a ThunderBay enclosure
If you have other disks that you wish to use SoftRAID on you can upgrade to a full, unrestricted version of SoftRAID or SoftRAID Lite. Please visit our upgrades page for information on upgrade pricing and application form.
After you download SoftRAID for ThunderBay or SoftRAID Lite for ThunderBay, just copy the application to your volume. Then click the application in the applications folder to run it. The SoftRAID and SoftRAID Lite applications will install all the necessary software the first time you run them.
* If you install the SoftRAID for ThunderBay driver and use it on other disks, SoftRAID will report predictive failure, but you won't be able to use SoftRAID's full range of features such as: creating volumes, rebuilding volumes, certifiying disks, validating volumes. To use these features you will need to upgrade to the unrestricted (non-ThunderBay) version of SoftRAID or SoftRAID Lite
