LaCie has updated its disk-management utility SilverliningPro to version 6.4.3.

The new version adds support for LaCie USB 2.0 drives - albeit at USB 1.1 speeds. It also improves striped RAID performance by extending RAID capacity to 12 drives with custom block-size support. FireWire support is also improved in this release, with better general error recovery rates and more.

In addition, LaCie has altered its site so users no longer need to register or log-in in order to access its updaters section. The updated utility is available for download.
