We will soon be maxing out a shared RAID 5 storage (eight drives). I want to move some of the data on our current RAID 5 box to a new box, but I need to maintain the file path for some of the data. Can I map or redirect a folder so that a user goes to Server A and sees and opens a folder the same as always, when in reality that folder and its contents are now sitting on another drive? I am especially concerned about referenced files in AutoCAD docs and if the path will change.
You can accomplish this using Distributed File System (DFS). You can also map volumes if you are working from NT file system (NTFS). Volume mapping is accomplished through the Disk Management (part of Computer Management). Read
from Microsoft to learn how.
