Hybrid RAID Manager

(Palimpsest Replacement)

RAIDs (Redundant of Array of Independant Disks) are generally limited by the size of the small disk, resulting in wasted storage unless all disks are the same size. Our Hybrid RAID Manager recovers some of that wasted space.

This software is still in the alpha stage and is not ready for release.
