Windows 7: Windows version of an LVM?

Windows version of an LVM?

Dear Windows 7 forums, I apologise if this isn't a W7 question as such, more of a Server 2003 question, one which may be RAID related but my poor brain is currently broken due to hours or AD teachings!

Anyway, quick Q .. in Linux I have a file-server which has a Logical Volume defined.
This consists of TWO x 1 TB hard-disks "joined" to make a single mount point.

To access I simply open up konquerer and point to /usr/share/myLVM
I can save up to 2 TB of data into that folder and when it's full, simply add another physical disk and then include that in the LVM. The available space increases accordingly in that mount point.

My Q is, can I perform something similar with Windows server 2003?

I have a domain but unable to set AD permissions and ACLs to the file servers as they all run Linux LVMs.

I hope my post makes sense, please feel free to ask any questions you have if it doesn't!
Thank you for reading

You mean Dynamic Disk in Windows? It can emulate RAID 0 in software, yes.
