    Set up RAID0 in Windows 8 - use "Storage Spaces"?

    DeePeeBee

      I just finished a successful clean-install of windows 8 on my media machine (Asus X79WS, GeForce 570, OS on SSD, 4x1TB WD Black HDDs on the Intel Ports). I created a 4-disk raid0 in BIOS which shows up in Device Mgr. In looking thru Windows 8 to find where to initialize the HDs, I stumbled across something called "Storage Spaces" which appears to be a Windows version of RAID1.

       

      Would using "Storage Spaces" allow the use of WD Black drives in a parity raid??

       

      Is there any advantage in using "Storage Spaces" over using the BIOS RAID0??

       

      Thanks,

      Dorothy
