I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 with a 500GB SSD drive that is storage for a mysql database. I am running out of room and purchased a 1TB SSD drive. What I would like to do is use Windows Storage Spaces to just extend onto this 1tb drive so I will have 1.5tb.
The only options I see is "Storage Pools" in the Server Manager. Is this the same as storage spaces? And within storage pools, the only option is to create a pool using unformatted disks.
From what I understand, Storage Spaces should allow me to add multiple drives, even if they are being used. Is this not the case? Am I perhaps not even using the actual storage spaces?
