Hey Guys,

I've got a few 100 - 200 gig external HDD that I would LOVE to 'merge' into a single disk on OSX... I know this kind of thing can be done on a windows machine [ with Dynamic Disk formatting ] but I haven't been able to find anything on this topic for OSX's...

Is this kinda thing posible?

Cheers

[ I may be completely wrong on this ] but isn't RAID used to mirror and create similtanious copies of disks for peformance enhancements?

or can you set it up to create 'single partitions' out of multiple hdd's??

RAID 0 will do what you are saying, but doesn't dynamic disks not require all disks to be on? RAID Would require both disks on all the time.

Cool !!
Thats fine - I knew Dynamic disks worked ok because I had set it up before in my last job - but I RAID is 100% ok for what I want to do !

Cheers guys !
