TOPIC: Will Drive Scope ever support RAID drives?

Will Drive Scope ever support RAID drives? 19 Oct 2019 04:43 #11471

Near the end of the Drive Scope home page is an important restriction: "Drives in RAID enclosures not supported."

Drive Scope looks very interesting, except that more than half of my numerous external HDs are in 3 RAID "JBOD" enclosures. (JBOD = Just a Bunch Of [independent] Drives.)

Is there any hope a future version of Drive Scope will support RAID drives, at least in JBOD configuration?

Interesting question. I will ask about this on Monday.

It is not likely that we will be able to have such a feature, because there are too many different ways of making RAIDs, too many RAID controller chips and too many different firmware versions.

Even the Drobo, which comes with its own proprietary RAID software, is able to give only an overall "pass" or "fail" for the individual drives in the enclosure.
