technically refs filesystem sits above the windows dynamic disks and doesn't recognize whats gooing on on the disks, this is why it work...
microsoft told me also that i should use storage spaces instead -> dynamic disks are unsecure, storage spaces not..
but basically the main reason for spanned volumes and refs could be a netapp with its 16TB "Filesize" Limit, because of that a LUN thats mounted to a backup server can only be 16TB... -> ah netapps LUN, actually 1 disk that the microsoft server sees is a File on a RAID-DP volume.. so not issues when 1 disk break because of the raid behind the single disk-file is redunant too!
if you really think of using single physical drives and span with dynamic disks... don't do it!
