Windows 7: Merging multiple drives into a single WMC listing.

17 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Merging multiple drives into a single WMC listing.

Okay Gurus' .... I need some help!

I have a C:\ drive and an E:\ drive on a Windows 7 X64 Media Center PC. Both have a directory called "Movies" ... when I start Windows Media Center and go to "Videos" I have a C:\Movies AND an E:\Movies.

Is it possible to merge both these directories into a single directory in Windows Media Center?

The C drive is 95% full so I can't copy the movies from the E:\ drive onto C:\ and the E:\ drive is 95% empty... so over time I'll add more movies to my collection (on the E:\ drive) and would really like to have ALL the movies from both C:\Movies and E:\Movie listed in a single directory and arranged alphabetically....

Any thoughts, ideas, comments?


Ps. I've already tried adding both directories to the windows library 'Movies' directory but you can't access the 'Movie' library from within the Media Center! (Or can you ??????)

I reckon you can do it with multiple disks in JBOD format, if your motherboard supports that.

However you wouldn't be able to share space on your boot drive using this method.

Otherwise you can add as many folder locations as you wish in WMC for movie archives.

If you go down to the Hard Drive Storage section you see you can customize it with four different options. I chose the 1st one (750GB mechanical...
