Volume Set


Definition of Volume Set in the Network Encyclopedia.

What is Volume Set?

Volume Set is a single volume created using discontiguous free areas on hard disks. By using the Microsoft Windows NT administrative tool Disk Administrator, you can create volume sets by combining between 2 and 32 free areas on your disk drives.

Volume Set is the same as Spanned Volumes

Volume sets are called spanned volumes in Microsoft Windows 2000 and above, and they are created using the Computer Management snap-in for the Microsoft Management Console (MMC).

Volume Set Limitations

The Windows NT system partition and boot partition cannot be volume sets.

You can extend a volume set formatted with the NTFS file system without having to reformat the entire volume.
