This video demonstrates how to set up multiple disks of different sizes and interfaces to create a single giant “storage pool."
- [Narrator] Continuing from my previous movies…introducing Windows Storage Spaces,…my discussion there was a bit abstract,…so let me bring this back down to Earth…with a more straightforward demonstration…of how to create a Storage Space.…First, connect two or more additional drives to your system.…You can't use your system drive for this,…but you can use either internal or external drives,…but each must have a capacity of five gigabytes or larger.…Then, bring up the Storage Spaces Control Panel.…Now, if you haven't set up a Storage Space yet,…you'll only see a link to create a new space.…
Once you've set up Storage Spaces,…information about your system spaces will appear here.…For now, click on the…"Create a new pool and Storage Space" link…and then select the drives you want to use…for your Storage Space.…Notice that I have several different types of drives here.…I have two unformatted drives, each of them one terabyte,…and if I open up the formatted drives area,…I have my Passport USB drive,…that's also a one terabyte drive.…
