You Beta Be AfRAID of Norton -- Mark James <email@example.com> has identified a severe incompatibility between the public beta of Norton Utilities 4.0 for the Macintosh and volumes formatted with SoftRAID, the RAID software currently bundled with Apple servers. When repairing a striped volume, Norton Utilities apparently changes the partition type to HFS, thereby rendering all striped volumes inaccessible. Independent sources confirm this problem also applies to Apple RAID, RAIDware, ImageRAID, and FWB's RAID ToolKit. Symantec should be able to fix this problem quickly, and while anyone who's been nipped by this issue has our sympathies, it's beyond us why people would be running pre-release disk repair software on an important disk without top-notch backups. (And if you don't have top-notch backups, check out Adam's recent article series on the subject.) [GD]
