Question

Does Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption support RAID systems ?

Answer

Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption does not support the built-in software "RAID" options in Windows 2K/XP.

From the technical point of view, Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption should be usable on RAID solutions where a dedicated controller takes care of the RAID functionality, i.e. where the system sees the RAID as a normal, albeit somewhat large, disk.

In fact Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption does not support the "RAID" function (e.g. no support for the "hot plug" function --> change a defect harddisk online).
