Create virtual drive to write to multiple drives

Create virtual drive to write to multiple drives


I hope I'm posting this to the right area.

I'm looking to make (or if it exists, find software) a virtual drive, that I can save files to, but upon saving the files to it, they will be distributed to other drives.

IE: I copy three files to my "virtual" drive, and it writes these files (one each) to 3 separate real hard drives.

The point of this would be to distribute my files evenly across my hard drives (which I use parity software to add fault tolerance).

Right now I'm having to manually push files to each drive to try and maintain an even amount of space accross them.

I've got a bit of a programming background (went to college for it years ago), but I'm not sure where to start, I've read about Dokan, but before getting into that, I wanted to see if there was a simple way of going about it, or a solution out there that already exists.
