  1. So the chances of a HD failing using a spanned or striped volume is the same as just one HD on its own storage failing?
  2. I have been doing a bunch of research on this and it seems that only using a striped volume will result in losing all of my data if one HD fails because it splits data on both drives. But using a spanned volume, I won’t lose all my data if one HD fails. A spanned volume works by filling up the first HD first, then once there’s no more storage, it’ll then start using the second HD. So if one HD fails, I can still get the data from the HD that didn’t fail.
  3. I can’t seem to find anything on Google about this. I know that striped volume offers better R/W speed since the data is stored on hard drives as if it’s one hard drive… but I can’t seem to find anything if striped or spanned is safer? in terms of wearing out the life span of a hard drive, is spanned or striped better? That’s what I really want to know? Does spanned or striped causes a failed hard drive faster? I’m not sure how to ask this question but hope someone can understand. Thank you
  4. I don’t have a back up plan… just kinda going on risk I guess haha
  5. I don’t think they will fail any time soon. They’re all SSDs and fairly new.
  6. Is it easier for the drives to just be corrupted since they’re merged storage?
  7. I don’t see the “convert to a dynamic volume” option…
  8. Your answers are just so spot on and easy to understand. Thank you for helping me!!
  9. I see. Thank you for helping me. Just out of curiosity, is it even possible to extend an SSD and a HDD since they have different R/W speeds?
  10. Ah okay, but I can’t do that to my C: drive, just the 2 extra storages I have right?
  11. What does this mean exactly? Can you explain a little bit what you mean? I really appreciate it.
  12. I’m in windows 10. And I don’t like having 3 separate drives… it’s so annoying to me…
  13. I am not sure if this is possible or not, but there is a video of Linus’s where he makes a hard drive from a bunch of micro sd cards, video down below. So my laptop has 3 storage slots, 2 are NVMe slots, and the other is just a normal hard drive slot. I have a total of about 2TB (1TB, 500GB, 500GB) combined, but I was wondering if I am able to merge the partitions from all of my drives into like one huge 2TB storage so I don’t have to always keep picking and choosing where I put things and stuff, also all 3 are internal. Not connected via USB adapter or anything. thanks
  14. I want to create my own VPN server so I can watch Japanese Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and all the other streaming service. I am quite fluent in Japanese and I would like to watch some Japanese content but of course in the states, they are blocked and using a VPN server from Nord VPN, Express VPN, Surf Shark, they all don't work and 100% of the time these online streaming services knows that I am using a VPN. Also, these VPN companies only have a few IP address for each country so every customer will be sharing that same IP address. I would like to create my own so I can have my own uni
