Managing Disks

 < Day Day Up > 

There are two different kinds of disks in Windows Small Business Server: basic disks and dynamic disks. Basic disks are the conventional disks we’re used to. Dynamic disks were introduced in Windows 2000 Server, and support additional management and agglomeration options.

Basic disks support two different kinds of partitions: primary and extended. They cannot be used with the advanced disk management techniques that are supported by Windows Small Business Server. They can, however, be seen by other operating systems if you have your Small Business Server machine configured for dual booting. Dynamic disks use volumes instead of partitions, and support the additional management, redundancy, and agglomeration features of Windows Small Business Server, including Spanned Volumes, Stripped Volumes (RAID-0), Mirrored Volumes (RAID-1), and RAID-5.
