OWC RAID Manager (BETA Version*)

Control and manage your RAID settings with this easy to use visual interface.

The power of simplicity is evident in the OWC RAID Manager. With easy to follow options and menus, this convenient user interface adds a level of control and monitoring for unrivaled operating confidence.

*While the functionality of the user interface is nearly complete, the overall look and feel as well as basic environment settings (dock and menu bar item) are still being finalized. As such, this product is in a BETA level of support and therefore no guarantee of system stability, data integrity, etc. is offered. For more information, please read the Software License Agreement here.

Two modes, Basic and Advanced, let you tailor the setting to best
suit your technical proficiency and particular needs.

Under the Basic Mode, you can:

  • Create, and delete RAID arrays and monitor them visually and/or with audible alerts.
  • View drive S.M.A.R.T. status to determine future reliability.
  • Password protect your RAID array to prevent unauthorized access and modification of the array.
The Advanced Mode adds these features to the Basic set:
  • Create multiple RAID sets among the four drives
    • Eg. Select RAID 1 for two drives and RAID 0 for the other two drives.
    • RAID Choices: 0,1,3,5,10, Clone (an enhanced RAID 1), and Large (JBOD)
  • Selectable standby/sleep time for the Rack Pro
    • Select no standby or up to 10922 minutes for the Rack Pro to enter standby mode.

1. When using in independent mode via eSATA, you must use a eSATA Interface/Controller which supports eSATA Port Multiplier standard.
(Please see "Recommended eSATA Cards" in SPECS table and check for Port Multiplier compatibility.)

2. When using in Independent Mode and wanting to switch out one or more drives, ALL drives must be ejected (unmounted) from the Desktop to avoid data corruption.

3. The use of FireWire 800 interface while the Rack Pro is in RAID 5 setting is not recommended for optimum drive speed performance.
