Adding hard drives
Before you make a hard drive available to users, you need to configure it and consider how it will be used. With Windows Server 2012 R2, you can configure hard drives in a variety of ways. The technique you choose depends primarily on the type of data with which you’re working and the needs of your network environment. For general user data stored on workstations, you might want to configure individual drives as stand-alone storage devices. In that case, user data is stored on a workstation’s hard drive, where it can be accessed and stored locally.
Although storing data on a single drive is convenient, it isn’t the most reliable way to store data. To improve reliability and performance, you might want a set of drives to work together. Windows Server 2012 R2 supports drive sets and arrays by using the redundant array of independent disks (RAID) technology, which is built into the operating system.
