I am wondering i have learned that spanned and striped volumes are. spaned is somewhat similar but in striping a file is writen to all disks at once. but spanned fills a drive to capacity then goes on to the next disk. and that if one disk fails in either the whole volume is lost. this makes since especily for a striped aray. but if a spaned should fail couldn't you just access the contents on all the disks individualy on the disks that are still ok? this sees like it would work to me and is the main reason i like spanning more than stripeing. am i correct or is it one fails the whole thing is toast?
