On spanned volumes, drives are utilized sequentially…meaning the data won't be written to the second drive…until the first drive is completely filled up.…This allows you to combine two or more hard drives…of different sizes to create one large volume.…Now striped volumes in comparison,…the data is written across all participating drives…offering better performance than the spanned option,…however since the volume will be full…when the smallest drive fills, you'll need to use…
