Today, Bowei Xu brings us part two of his blog on Windows 8’s new Storage Spaces feature.
In the example below, I will show you how to create a Parity Virtual Disk out of a Storage Pool that has four physical disks, one of which is used as a “Hot Spare” disk. The hot-spare disk will come online automatically (it took about 5 to 8 minutes in my test below) in the event of a disk failure happening elsewhere in the pool. This allows for rapid recovery from disk failure, ensuring all data is protected as appropriate. “Repair-VirtualDisk” cmdlet can also be used to trigger the repair process immediately. I show both in the example below.
