Windows 7: Partitions and drives.

01 Dec 2009   #1

Partitions and drives.

Dont ask me why I want to know, I am not really sure.
A single physical hd can be split into multiple partitions and so multiple drives if you wish.
Q. Can you partition(?) 2 physical hd`s into 1 virtual drive ?
Just curious is all.
