[TxMt] Re: TM2: SCM button and Go -> SCM Status

I tracked down the problem of the the SCM button not working. I am using a
software RAID for my projects ( http://www.softraid.com/). For some reason
this is being detected as a non-local mount even though the RAID is local
and very fast.

Is there a workaround for this??

Thanks Anthoy
