Is there any way to prevent Windows 8 from turning off a storage space when it reaches maximum physical capacity? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently doing a bit of QA for a backup software company and we are investigating some potential issues with the use of Windows 8's new storage spaces feature. I quickly found that when any of the disks in a storage space pool reach their maximum physical capacity Windows will essential shut down the storage space. This behavior causes our software to, depending on the situation, either throw an error and assert, or ask the user to locate a now missing drive.

    Our software does have some tools available to provide a workaround if the user prepares their backup set in a specific way, but it would be preferential to stop windows from completely shutting down the storage space upon reaching capacity.

    Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

    Thanks,

    -Jeff
