    I have three 1TB HDD on a Win Server 2016 brand new. I want to configure a C, D, and E drive from the three physical HDDs. C will be for the system and programs, D will be for data, and E will be for manual copying of files to back up. How can this be done?

    Hi and how are you!? Thank you in advance in in sparing me the time of your day to look into mine, so here goes! I am interested in getting Microsoft Essential and I wanna know the down right basics of what to know about it and money wise as I would only wanna use it for home use and access outside of the home. I understand that yes ofc I'll have to buy it hehehe! but are there any fees should I be aware of other than just buying it outright from microsoft? are there yearly fees to be paid and do i have to pay some amount of money depending on how many cores I have? again thank you very much for the time you've put in reading mine, you and your time spent are greatly appreciated

  9. Thanks dude, the video is informative and the last 5 mins are cooool

  10. "because using other people's storage solutions can cost you up to … a lot of money."

    LOL! Well, I have to say you definitely can't be wrong on that one! I'm totally using this the next time I have to discuss I.T. finances with my boss – just to see the look I get.

  27. How do you do storage pools with multiple servers?

  28. Jeff Clarke says:

    I am trying to do this in a vmware environment. I've got a VM up and configured for File Server. I've tried several sized disks but at the moment I'm testing 2 500GB disks and trying to set up a storage pool. I've tried several options when assigning the disks to the server ie: thin/thick provision, independent/not independent etc…Tried formatting both standard and dynamic and GPT/MBR. Whatever I do i'm getting the following error during the pool set up:
    Physical Disks:
    The drive cannot find the sector requested.
    It does this for as many disks as I have assigned to the server. The back end storage is a Dell Compellent SCV2000 at the most recent firmware/software versions.
