    Raid drive partition not mounting @ startup

    I have a raid drive that I thought was portitioned as HD1, HD2, HD3. The problem I am having is HD3 does not mount @ startup. I need to use Disk Utility to unmount & then mount to use HD3. Diskutil list revealed:Pats-Mac-Pro:~ patobrien$ diskutil list
    /dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0
    1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
    2: Apple_CoreStorage Macintosh HD 250.1 GB disk0s2
    3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3

    /dev/disk1 (internal, virtual):
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD +249.8 GB disk1
    Logical Volume on disk0s2

    /dev/disk2 (external, physical):
    #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *4.0 TB disk2
    1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1
    2: Apple_HFS OWC HD 1 1.3 TB disk2s2
    3: Apple_HFS OWC HD 2 1.3 TB disk2s3
    4: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk2s4
    5: Apple_HFS OWC HD 3 1.3 TB disk2s5

    I am not sure how "Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk2s4". My objective is to get "Apple_HFS OWC HD 3 1.3 TB disk2s5" to mount at startup. Any help would be appreciated. Pat

    Can't really help with the problem, but this app may make your life easier by allowing you to mount drives from your menu bar : http://appgineers.de/mountain/index.html
