    I do not want to use Storage Spaces anymore. Is that possible? How to disassemble dismantle...


    I'm using Microsoft Storage Spaces but I do not want to use it anymore. Is that possible? How I disable Storage Spaces, and keep my data integrity? Take out my data back to a normal stage without a pool! Or eventually, if Microsoft Storage Spaces is a trap and I presume is not possible, How I take my data out from it now?

    :)

  2. I have an HP Stream Laptop and I keep running out of storage space

    Hi Jay,

    If a category can't show the folders that it contains, there is a possibility that the folders are somehow hidden. To maximize your PC's storage, follow the suggested steps in these links:

    Problem with Storage Space

    Thanks for the tips. I appreciate it.

    Any idea if it might be possible to run a utility against the disk to repair it? Not sure if it being in a storage space would cause that to be non-feasible.

    Heading out to check out the programs you suggested.

    Storage Spaces Parity Repair?

    Hi: I'm a newbie here... using an OWC Thunderbay 6 DAS with Thunderbolt 3 for video/photo files using (Win 10 Home) Storage Spaces for the past 6 weeks without problems. Using Parity option in Storage Spaces to emulate RAID 5 protection.

    Today, got Parity Error in Manage Storage Spaces, though all 6 drives show "OK". Both Hard Disk Sentinel and CrystaDiskInfo also show normal drives. No pertinent drive events in Event Viewer.

    From reading other posts from folks with Storage Spaces issues, I'm inclined to "repair" this parity error if possible, and then consider migrating to DrivePool to avoid repetition or other future issues with SS. Can anyone walk me through how to do a parity repair?

    If not doable, then can someone detail a step-by-step process for migrating my 24Tb currently on Storage Spaces to Drivepool? Many thanks!
