- Storage spaces are virtual drives that appear in Windows Explorer. You can use them like any other drive, so itís easy to work with files on them.
- You can create large storage spaces and add more drives to them when you run low on pool capacity.
- If you have two or more drives in the storage pool, you can create storage spaces that won't be affected by a drive failureóor even the failure of two drives, if you create a three-way mirror storage space.
- You will be able to connect the added drives of a storage space to another Windows 8 computer or new installation of Windows 8 to have that Windows 8 see and use the storage space in it's storage pool as well.
