Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Storage spaces, part of CompTIA A+ Exam Prep (220-902) Part 2: Putting Pieces Together.
- Implementing RAID on an individual machine…has always been a bit of a challenge.…Traditionally, you've had two choices.…You could use hardware RAID.…Almost every motherboard comes with built in RAID,…and that works fine.…Or you could use software RAID within Windows…being able to do things like striping and mirroring.…However, that was really your only two choices.…And there's some downsides to these.…Number one, and the biggest one,…is that these versions of RAID are very static.…They're very fixed.…Once you set them up, you really…can't make any changes to them at all.…
Well, Microsoft changed all that…in Windows 8 Storage Spaces.…And that's what this episode's all about.…We're gonna have a tour through Storage Spaces,…and I'm gonna show you how powerful this tool really is.…Now, I'm gonna be doing all this in Windows 10,…but do keep in mind that Storage Spaces…came out with Windows 8.…And even though I'm doing it in 10,…it looks exactly the same in 8.…So let's dive in and take a look at Storage Spaces.…So what I've done here on my systems is I've opened…
In Part 2, Mike Meyers helps you understand all the pieces that comprise the modern computer: RAM, power supplies, hard drives, and peripherals.

In Chapter 5, Mike shows how to build a basic PC, and install a fresh copy of Windows.
