SoftRAID 3 takes your existing hard disks and groups them together to give you more speed, capacity and/or instantaneous backup. No more need of a hardware solution to get RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) protection. Now SoftRAID 3 lets your OS X system have all the benefits of RAID with your own Macintosh and hard disks.

Hard drives die. Used to be, when I lost a hard drive I lost some or all of my data. I know I'm supposed to back everything up. But I don't. And, as far as I can tell, neither do most people.

Pros: Since running SoftRaid (3 years now) I don't loose my data when a drive goes south. Speeds up disk reads. Bullet-proof quality.

Cons: A RAID mirror uses twice the drive space. (So? Drives are cheap!) RAID doesn't protect me from my own supidity.

Comparision: Better features, reliability and interface than Apple RAID.

Bottom Line: Best $129 investment I've ever made. It's a no brainer.
