If you're just starting out with SoftRAID, we recommend reviewing our detailed web guides, as well as the inline or online help system that ships with your version of SoftRAID.

If you have begun to install SoftRAID and need to immediately locate the serial number / SoftRAID key, it will be found in one of two locations generally: 

  • For drive enclosures look on the bottom of the device.
    • Occasionally they will be behind the faceplate.
  • For PCIe solutions like the Accelsior 4M2, the serial number will be on the back of the card.
    • Please make note of your serial number BEFORE installing the card into a computer or PCIe chassis.

Three examples are shown below with the s/n blurred.
