"Safety + speed = a great product"
Version: SoftRAID 4.5.1
In my experience as a home user, SoftRAID has demonstrated its value time and again. Do you back up your data as often as you should? I didn't think so. With two or three disks set up as a mirror, your data is continuously protected: when a disk fails, which is bound to happen from time to time, you haven't lost anything. And SoftRAID warns you when a disk is likely to fail soon. But equally important, all disks in the mirror are used concurrently for reads, so any work that depends on disk I/O, including backups, goes noticeably faster. Your machine can boot faster, applications can launch faster, and large documents can load faster. The publisher's support is prompt and conscientious. If you use your computer for anything more than recreation, this product is well worth its price for your peace of mind.
You do have to take the time to learn how to set up a disk array, but it's not difficult.
