Hi Al

Ah-ha,  everything becomes clearer with the right acronym!  Thanks.

However, still not too sure about things having read the documentation.

Can someone confirm for me please that:

- the disk / partition's metadata is left intact and correctly formatted so
that a physical drive can be moved between machines without problems -
presumeing the correct commands are issued to remove the drive from the
virtual drive;


- when writing to the virtual disc, LVm won't split large files over
multiple physical partitions / drives unless specifically told to do so?

I think you mean LVM.

Logical Volume Management.
