Apple RAIDs

Top  Previous  Next

MacOS X can create several software RAIDs from disks connected to a Mac computer: RAID1 (Mirror set), RAID0 (Stripe set), and Concatenated disk set.

Restorer Ultimate automatically detects disks from Mac RAID sets and creates their virtual RAIDs automatically. At the same time, Restorer Ultimate gives access to the individual members of the Mac RAID sets (hard drives and images).

If recognized members of a Apple RAID are added to Restorer Ultimate (including disk images), Restorer Ultimate automatically adds them to their respective Apple RAIDs.

When Apple RAID members are such damaged that Restorer Ultimate cannot recognize them as members of broken Apple RAIDs, you may add them manually. Right-click the required Apple RAID, select Add missing parents on the shortcut menu and select the required object(s) on the Add missing disks dialog box.
