    I was aware of drive pooling, however, it is really nothing like DE. For
    one thing it is only going to work with SAS drives, and for another, it is
    going to require management, really no simpler than creating or managing a
    RAID array. It still isn't going to be a technology aimed at the home user
    like DE was.

    Not entirely sure what you mean by DE but Windows Server 8 is already
    available if you've got a Technet or MSDN subscription. No idea if or even
    when it will be publicly available.

    Sorry, didn't notice that I was in the WHS forum and not the Windows 8
    forum. Not sure why you'd assume that Drive Extender is going to be in
    Windows 8.

    You know it is going to be a bad day when you forget your new password.
