Request: support for dynamic disks(software raid)

Question

Would be great if dynamic disks could be used as the cache drive - i use it for mirroring to avoid corruption but is unable to use it for clouddrive.

 

I understand why USB drives shouldn't be used, but dynamic discs is pretty much just a group of normal discs!

Unfortunately at this stage dynamic disks is the only software-RAID in Windows that supports redundancy for the boot volume - a scenario which Microsoft continues to support and recommend when a redundant boot volume is required.

This is something that can't be (officially) done using Storage Spaces, and as far as I'm aware, Microsoft has no plans to change this.

Probably not an issue for those with large numbers of drives, but for those of us with smaller systems with limited numbers of drives, having a small redundant OS volume on larger dynamic disks, with the rest used for various levels of data - some can be mirrored, some can be not - is a nice efficient storage solution. It would be really beneficial to be able to use something like DrivePool in conjunction with this.
