Adding network drives into a DrivePool

Question

Situation:  2 separate Windows servers, each has 5-10 hard drives, each independently runs DrivePool.  I was using the 2nd server as a backup for the 1st server.  I'm trying out a new backup solution now, and I'd like to merge all the hard drives from both servers into one big DrivePool.   But I can't figure out how to add the hard drives in server #2 into the DrivePool on server #1....

Seeing this MIGHT be possible with CloudDrive... if it can take a windows share on the network and turn it into a drive that DrivePool recognizes, that'll work just fine.  I need some time to try it though - I'm still setting up the new backup system.

So I'm not fully set up yet, but I tested it with a slice of the drivepool on the 2nd server and it appears this solution will work!   Leaving this post up for others who may find it.  Use CloudDrive to take shared network drives and turn them into locally-mounted drives that you can use in DrivePool.
