Easy way to setup NTFS storage pool instead of RAID?

Recommended Posts

anyone using something simple?

I just need to duplicate contents in a single folder, not necessarily a whole drive with the same capacity 

and being able to remove an individual drive and be able to access the contents in any windows PC is appealing

anyone doing this or is this not popular yet?

oh sorry

I meant when the drive fails to remove it 

not on a daily basis

Mirror seems to be like raid but able to use any hard drive instead of very similar spec ones

I will look at the sync toy thanx

 

edit:

here is the video

so for example

let's say you had a 256GB and a 512GB

 

you can mirror the two SSDs to duplicate the data

but a storage pool would also allow you to use the extra space on the 512gb to create another volume of free storage

or say, SSD prices drop and you buy a 1TB, you can mirror that to you 256GB and keep all you pictures of grandma

I see what you mean. There's plenty of software that can do what you want. I'm old school, and just write my own scripts to do this. :P

Basically yes. I use a Port multiplier to do this. I have it hooked to my server and it is used to back up the server. I can pull any of the drives and they work slaved into any PC or enclosure....
