Buffalo DriveStation DUO RAID utility update

Buffalo Technologies seems to have quietly released version 1.01 of their RAID utility for the DriveStation DUO.

Buffalo DriveStation DUO external hard drive with RAID

Last year, I bought a Buffalo Drivestation Duo for backing up my hard drive and storing my images. The device seems to work like a champ, but I haven’t been able to configure the RAID functionality. It’s supposed to be two 250 GB drives, that can either be a 500 GB drive or a single 250 GB drive with RAID 1. The RAID tool hasn’t worked since I got it.

Every time I try to run the RAID utility it throws an exception. I contacted Buffalo through their online support form, but never head anything back. Unfortunately, I got distracted (as I usually do with these kinds of things) by the rest of my life and never followed up – except to occasionally check their downloads site.

Well today I found out that Buffalo seems to have quietly released version 1.01 of their RAID tool. There is no mention of it in the Knowledge Base. But in their favor, it looks like the Knowledge Base has been reset or something.
