I am not really sure why people are hung up on the whole pooling or spanned idea anyway. As I mentioned he wanted the drives to appear as 1 large drive and wanted it done in the simplest way possible.

As he has (or will have) a server with duplicate data he isn't worried about data loss. We informed him multiple times that data could be lost in event of a drive failure and he understood those risks.

Again, not how I would use it necessarily but its also not my HTPC.

I believe that spanning is done by hardware and pooling done by software for the most part.

Assassin's question was directed at the fact that hockeyrcks9901 seemed to imply that a pooled drive has fault tolerance, whereas a spanned drive is similar but doesn't.

As far as I can tell, they're both the exact same thing and both don't have any fault tolerance...

Perhaps some people are confusing spanning with striping?

If it's just media it might not be ultra important.

I mean the TV shows I record.. I could probably live without them. lol.

Assassin have you done any more of these type of builds recently ?
