- In this lesson, I demonstrate…how to create a storage space in Windows 10.…First thing you want to do is connect two or more…additional drives to your computer.…You can't use your system drive for this…but the drives can be either internal or external.…Next, click on the Windows icon…in the lower left hand corner,…and in the Search box, just simply type Storage Spaces.…Sometimes you just have type Storage…and you'll see that as the first link at the top.…That'll bring up the Manage Storage Spaces dialog here.…Choose the Create a new pool and storage space link.…
Go ahead and click Yes if you get this dialog.…Now you need to choose which drives…you want to include in the new storage pool.…I'm going to do these two drives,…Disk 1 and Disk 2.…Make sure there's a check next to each one…that you want to add to the pool,…and click on the Create pool button…at the bottom of the dialog.…Windows will go ahead and create that pool for you.…Give this storage space a name,…give it a drive letter.…This can be any drive letter that you want.…
