What is a characteristic of a spanned volume?
- Data is stored across two or more disks for faster read and write access.
- Data is seen as one volume, but is stored across two or more disks.
- A copy of one disk is placed on another disk for fault tolerance.
- Data is striped across a total of three or more disks, but one disk is used for parity in order to provide fault tolerance.
A spanned volume requires at least two drives. The combined drives are seen as one volume with one drive letter. When one drive is filled, data is then written to another drive in the volume until it is full.
