  1. Are nested storage spaces possible? (Like RAID 0+1)


    I recently had a 3TB hard drive fail on me, and I am trying to come up with a much better solution for storing my data so that I don't have to recover everything from CrashPlan again. My plan is to have two 3TB Hard drives connected in RAID 0 (Simple Space) so that I have 6TB of usable space, and then I would like to mirror that data over to an external 6TB drive. I want this all to appear as one drive within windows. Is this possible using Storage Spaces? Thank you so much!

    :)

    Windows 10 storage spaces

    Thanks Rob. I'm checking the technet site now.

    I'm a video producer/editor and I've used RAID configurations on MACs for years. I'm setting up a new PC to edit with Premiere Pro and want to set up a RAID 0 for media storage. I thought Windows Storage Pool would create a RAID 0 on this machine, but I'm
    not getting the speeds I expect from 4 raided drives.

    I'll post back if I find a solution.

    Windows 10 storage spaces

    I am trying to set up a RAID 0 on a new machine. I have 4 identical 5 TB HDDs. When I benchmark the drives individually, I'm getting speeds of around 170 MB/sec on each drive. When I assemble a storage pool with all four drives, simple pool, no parity,
    I am getting speeds of around 212 MB/sec. This seems way too slow. I would expect speeds in the range of 600 MB/sec. When I assemble these drives into a pool with parity, I am getting read speeds of around 415 MB/sec and much slower write speeds. I am not
    surprised by the slower write speeds and the read speeds seem about right. It seems that a simple pool with no parity is not really RAID 0, but just a bunch of disks. How can I stripe these 4 drives to achieve RAID 0?
