Again, I was saying OS emulated as you keep missing. So JBOD-like, not the true thing. Again, you misunderstand me. I was using the terms symbolically, not literally. I was talking about EMULATION at the OS level of using reparse points to hide the fact of separate volumes - something XP does. That was what I was talking about the entire time. If you truly knew me, you'd take for granted that I KNOW that TRUE RAID and TRUE JBOD is done at a lower level. I don't like to debate, and I bow out of my discussion with you.PascalDragon wrote:No, reparse points are not needed.

You know that kernel does not use the drive letters internally, they still remain because programmers of Windows ME applications wanted so.I prefer to go with \Device\HarddiskVolume1 instead of the adapter and port addressesPurpleGurl wrote:And yes, I understand how the drives are addressed internally using adapter addresses and port addresses. However, not all software can address things that way.
