Description Yaniv Kaul 2010-10-11 09:58:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When I'm trying to create a soft RAID partition, all disks are checked by default. I need to manually un-check all but the one that I want the soft raid on.
Then I'm selecting the next disk - same issue again. And the next disk...

- When selecting a soft raid do not select all disks
or better yet:
- Allow just to create soft raid on all selected disks.

Can you attach a picture illustrating this?

Once 'software RAID' is selected - all drives are checked. This would have been great if it could actually do this - create a software RAID file system on all checked drives. If it can't, then it should uncheck all of them and check only the relevant one. (note - when you have many drives, as you would have for RAID, the list is bigger, and it's makes it much more inconvenient - you have to scroll down and uncheck the hidden ones). You need to do this for every drive separately.
