Combining two hard drives windows 10

Hi guys 

 

Seems a silly question 

 

I know you can combine two hard drives by striping them or whatever but i want to combine two drives of two different capacities

 

A 2TB and 1TB but keep the space on both if you get me so it'd equal 3TB or there about's after the system resevered stuff, any ideas? at the moment the size of the striped drive is the size of the largest drive

I think what you are looking to do is span the drives. In the case of spanning 2 or more drives they can be of differing sizes and data is written to one drive until it’s filled then continues writing to the second. In your case you would see 1 volume of 3tb.

 

A striped drive will require the drives to be of the same size.
