There are five types of dynamic volumes: Simple Volume, Spanned
Volume, Striped Volume (RAID 0), Mirrored Volume (RAID 1) and RAID-5 Volume. Not all
Operating Systems support the entire volumes, for example, Windows XP Professional only
supports Simple/Spanned/Striped Volume; you can create all the types of volumes in
Windows Server. With AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager, you can create volumes your Operating
System support easily.
The steps to create volume with AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager
- There must be some unallocated space on each dynamic disk whichever volume you
want to create, if not, you have to shrink volume or delete volume to generate
- You need to have different amounts of disks according to the type of volume you
create. If there is only one disk, you can only create Simple Volume. Both
Spanned Volume and Striped Volume need 2 physical disks at least, mirrored
volume requires 2 disks, and RAID-5 volume can be created when there are 3 disks
