    Nice, an upgrade option (I've still got a very old Spinrite II version :))

    Looks good, but does it work with IDE RAID 0, IDE RAID 1, SATA RAID 0, and SATA RAID 1 ?
    I read the review and info at GRC, but couldn't find anything. :doubt:

    Well I found this disappointing answer in the Q+A section. (it is for version 5, but I didn't see anything contrary in 6):

    Too bad, I was really looking forward to buying this. This means it won't be useful for the majority of the server market or anyone using RAID. Someone with Steve's talents should be able to make something (maybe less thorough) that would help RAID users. I cannot justify purchase as most hard drives I work with are RAID. :(
    Of course, if you don't use RAID (or won't in the future), then it is great. It's just that the trend appears to be going towards more RAID arrays even in home systems.
