[Dave Gage] "I've got the OWC Slim eSATA ExpressCard/34 Adapter. Keep in mind this is a MBP. I don't think the Mac Pro eSATA cards have the same issue."

When I work eSata it's with an MBP. I have other storage methods for my desktops.

Stop what you're doing any buy the Sonnet PRO express/34.

6Gb version:

They also have a 3Gb/sec version, but why bother.

[Dave Gage] "As I mentioned in the original post, FCP X continually hoses the directory structure of the RAID (until the drive is un-readable by the OS),"

I don't understand. What do you mean by this? How exactly does it get hosed and why is FCPX the culprit?

[Dave Gage] "so I was forced to buy Disk Warrior and now run it regularly. The Disk Warrior senior engineers stated that eSATA is not hot-swappable and that certainly has been my experience. I asked specifically about the kind or quality of eSATA ExpressCards and they didn't think it mattered, you should still re-boot when finished (and boot up from a cold boot with the drive on and connected)."

I almost never do that, nothing is ever hosed.
