Windows 8 now has “Storages Spaces” for creating RAID-like storage using pools of physical disks to create mirrored or parity redundancy for protection of stored data.
Their technical people say that although they use RAID concepts such as “mirroring”, that strictly speaking it is not RAID they are using.
I am wondering if the My Book Live Duo, since it can be used as a non-RAID disk, can be used with “Storage Spaces” in Windows 8 as part of the pool of physical disks?
Does anyone in the community have knowledge of this or even better actual experience? And a related question, when not using RAID can the two disks be addressed separately or is it strictly one logical 4TB unit only?
