Hi, I have a Desktop with (4) Samsung SSD's. (1) Boot and (3) for Storage Spaces. I want to use Storage Spaces Simple (no Redundancy.) RAID 0. All (4) are listed "CanPool False." I'm attaching a screenshot. I don't want to erase anything on my C:\ Drive. I need to Reset each Physical Disk. With "ResetPhysicalDisk." How do I find which SSD is C:? Will ResetPhysicalDisk format C:? Do I need to change C: to "CanPool True?" Please reply. Thanks Screenshot 2024-01-22 204012

    Hi Mike 2,

    You can run Get-Disk instead. This will list the physical disks not added to the storage pool and the storage spaces. The Reset-PhysicalDisk cmdlet will not format your disk. It just removes the storage pool configuration and pool data from the specified physical disk. And you don't need to change this disk where the C drive is located to "CanPool True". Actually, you are not allowed to add the disk that holds the C drive to the storage pool.

    Best Regards,

    Ian Xue
