Join James Gonzalez for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with Storage Spaces, part of Windows 10: Configure, Secure, and Manage Data.
- Let's dig a bit deeper into Storage Spaces…to learn how they can dramatically improve…how you manage large volumes of storage…through scale, resiliency and efficiency.…This figure illustrates the concept of a storage pool.…We've taken a pair of two terabyte USB disks…and pooled them together.…This virtual disk is usable just like…a regular physical disk, you can partition it, format it…and start copying data to it.…However, once physical disks have been added to a pool,…they're no longer individually usable.…They're dedicated to the pool in their entirety.…
Now if all you want to do is combine…two or more physical drives into one logical drive,…you can do that by creating a simple storage space.…Let's go back here to the Manage Storage Spaces dialogue…and click on the Create Storage Space.…And then notice the Resiliency Type here…is Simple, no resiliency.…This writes one copy of your data…and doesn't protect you from drive failure.…A simple storage space requires at least one drive.…Now however, if your disk fails,…
Using the tools that come with a standard Windows build, James Gonzalez shows how to configure data storage (on client devices and on OneDrive), secure data with good authentication practices, encrypt data with EFS and BitLocker, and manage data access to shared folders, printers, and hard drives. He also shows how to set up file sharing for an organization using HomeGroup networks and NTFS permissions.
