Hard Drive Striping
Posted on 2011-05-11
I installed five 2TB hard drives in my PC and I'm trying to stripe them. I have windows installed on a hard drive and I'm setting the extra drives up as a DVR storage.
During the striping process I select the five drives that I want to stripe and the total volume size comes to 9538635MB but the maximum amount of space is only 1907727MB. I continue with the process anyway.
If I have the process format the drives it will fail. If I don't allow it to format the drives it stripes the drives just fine. I then go to format it afterwards and the format fails.
I had these drives striped and formatted before, but I recently reloaded Windows 7 Professional.
Is there a common issue that could be causing this problem?
