FlexRAID does not change the filesystem on your drives, or the partition, or anything. It just mounts it into a special folder and performs its magic.
One report of a user that starts with "I don't know what i did" is not really proof of anything. Maybe something else corrupted his drives.
I've been using FlexRAID for quite a while already, i used it to recover a failed drive, i plugged individual drives into another system, i lost my config file once, i reinstalled windows and recovered the array afterwards, and it survived all of that and did what it advertised.
Everyone is free to "stay away", but for my use case there is nothing better at the moment, since it does all i want it to do, and i confirmed that it doesn't mess with my discs if it should fail one day.
