You can't have a hard link between files in different drives[0]. mmddfs
is probably copying instead of linking, even if it receives a ln call,
when it determines that each file must end up in different disks.

For your use case, LVM seems more adequate: you'll have only one
filesystem, even if at disk level it's stored in two disks.


[0]Actually, they must be in the same filesystem
