    A dynamic volume is contained within a dynamic disk and is a logical volume similar to a logical drive in a basic disk. There are five types of dynamic volumes. Which one writes to the physical disks evenly rather than filling alloted space on one then moving on to the next? Choose only one answer. Answer later.

    A. Simple volume
    B. Spanned volume
    C. Striped volume (RAID 0)
    D. Mirrored volume (RAID 1)
    E RAID 5

    EDIT: Don't worry. I only edited the question because part of it said "which one writes to writes to..." I took out the redundant "writes to" :oops:

    Not exactly, Fergal - if you have X number of drives in your raid set, then only X-1 are written to with actual data, you have to allow one drive's worth of capacity for the parity information. Note though, that each drive conatins a portion of the overall parity information.

    So, in effect, you are not really writing to all drives evenly.

    HTH :)
