I had the same problem. If you want it to show up as a "normal" drive in XBMC you need to make it act as a fixed drive in the storage pool's settings:
1) Go to your storage pool's "Preferences and Settings"
2) Expand the "Advanced Properties" section
3) Change "Removable" from true to false

Just put FlexRaid 2.0 on a windows 8 box and its running like a dream. Nice and easy to install as well

Reviving an old thread... I never understood, why flexraid has seen so little attention and also never understood why everyone loves unraid.
Have a few questions:
* Do I understand correctly that this pooling solution avoids spanning one file across several disks? Also, I still have drive letters to the pooled drive (i.e., d 2GB, e 2 GB, f 2GB, g pooled drive of 6 GB (d+e+f). I can then access drive g from xbmc with all movies?
* When watching one movie from pooled drive, only the drive that actually holds the movie is spinning? other drives are sleeping?
* Can I have two pools?
* What happens if the system disk fails (which has flexraid installed on it?). Assume disk just lost?
* If using snapshot raid (every 7 days) while using sabnzbd+ 24/7? Can it still recover everything or basically useless given sabnzbd writes to the disk 24/7, so the snapshot immediately becomes outdated.
