SoftRAID 4.5 fixes 2012 Mac mini data corruption issue
Apple’s 2012 Mac mini has had issues, sometimes caused in Cupertino and, like in this case, things that crop up elsewhere. SoftRAID is shipping v4.5 of their eponymous software RAID app that addresses generic bugs, as well as the 2012 Mac mini data corruption issue.
First there was the Mac mini HDMI flicker issue, which Apple addressed with Firmware Update 1.7, and now here comes SoftRAID with a fix for a data corruption issue with their app.
“We wanted to get a fix into our users’ hands as quickly as possible,” said Tim Standing, President of SoftRAID LLC. “Once we were able to duplicate the problem in our labs, we focused on developing a fix, testing it thoroughly and delivering it to our customers as quickly as possible.”
SoftRAID 4.5 (PR) is now available and delivers the following fixes:
• Fixes a data corruption bug which affects SoftRAID stripe and mirror volumes which are connected to the latest Mac minis (Late 2012)
• Fixed a bug that allowed some menu items in the “Disk” menu to remain enabled when a volume tile was selected
• For features, see the SoftRAID features page
SoftRAID advises that users with the 2012 Mac mini should upgrade to version 4.5 before connecting any SoftRAID volumes to their Mac. Further, the company strongly strongly encourage all SoftRAID users to upgrade to this version to prevent any possible problems with Macs that will be released in the future.
