Thats interesting... i thought this could be done "on the fly" easily. I guess it's more complicated then I originally thought. So, if you don't have a server, what is the common way to use just a bunch of drives ("JABOD's") say on a new build? Obviously I'm not the only one that has filled up more then one drive on his HTPC and doesnt use a NAS. Do you just map multiple folders from multiple volumes to your one library (such as your "Movies" library)?

Would be curious if strategically extending would buy me something I'm missing as Im always open to something new.
I'm already using E: for recorded TV. And sometimes I will delete and add other media to my d: drive so that's why I just wanted to let the PC choose where to put these files on one single volume (spread across multiple disks) rather having to manually know what is on each volume and guess how much room I have on D: to add media to it or to my other new volume. So basically I want to use D: as my NAS but attached locally and not on the main network... If that makes any sense...
