Sure, it's nice to have all that storage, now you just need to navigate through drives E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, and N. No thanks. I want one logical drive please.[/quotemsg]
If you have windows 8 (storage spaces) you can do it with that. Though that said you can also just create shortcuts on one drive to various other drives, or just rename the drives and change the icons and boom, there folders with a limited amount of space. (up to however much your hdd can hold.) and again thats where shortcuts come in, ran out of room on that hdd for say large videos? Put them on another drive and make a shortcut to it in that "folder" and boom, problem solved.[/quotemsg]
I'm not familiar enough with Win8 to comment on it. My next question then would be if Win8 allows the data to be striped with parity for hot-swap drive replacement/rebuild. Or does it just show the drives as one logical array and treat them as clusters?
