  1. Spider99's post in Does it matter if backing up many small files? was marked as the answer   
    have 600k of small files @ ~300gb on my drive pool in one "Library" no issue as dp emulates an ntfs volume - its only restricted by ntfs limits

    1. i would guess that D: is a separate partition on the "C" drive - i.e. drive was split into two - probably when the os was installed 
    2. You can swap drive letters using "disk management" - have to change one to say H first then move f to d and then d to f
    3. To move its just a copy/move as you would do for any file - no magic involved - or add f to the pool and use the "quick and dirty method" to move the files into the poolpart directory
    4. Nope os remains on c - cant move that
    5. attached to computer power up - windows will see the new drive and then so will dp - just click add - few seconds later drive will be part of the pool.
    Have fun

    yep thats fine i have done it on mine
    you can mount them to a NTFS folder - so you can get at them separately
    or not mount them at all - although access to the disk directly does become more difficult if you do
    drive pool uses the unc path so does not care about how windows "names" them
