I have multiple physical disks of different sizes that I wish to create one large pool of storage space on. The purpose of this large pool of space is to store a large encrypted file which is too large to be put on any single disk.
The problem with Snap RAID is that I can't have one file that spans multiple drives.
If I I create a large logical volume for Snap RAID then I run into the problem that I have no disks large enough to hold the parity for the single large logical volume. However I am not sure how LVM will handle it if I use the data partitions created by Snap raid as isn't LVM handled at a lower level?
How can I combine Snap RAID and LVM so that I can have one continuous pool of storage that can has parity calculated for each physical drive?
