NT can be found as an Operating System for users or as the foundation of a server. Because of this, the drive support in NT is much greater. For example, NT will support (in its own software) multiple drives making one volume (spanning), two physical drives backing each other up (mirroring), or stripping data, without or with parity (RAID 0 and 5 respectfully). NT can even support drives without drive letters assigned to them. All these new features needed to be put someplace. That someplace is known as the Disk Administrator.
