Are I can spread my database filegroup files to more than storage drive , not on the same storage drive , and stay connected logically as if they in the same drive , for example I want create filegroup named filegroup1 consist of these files : Data1.mdf
Data2.ndf , Data3.ndf
and I want to put every file in different storage drive , I will put Data1.mdf in Drive D , Data2.ndf in Drive F , Data3.ndf in Drive G and SQL Server will read them as filegroup despite they not in the same physical place , If this possible how can I do that

It is absolutely possible. Please refer to Books Online as to how. Lookup "filegroup".

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

I'm assuming you have already created the files and want to move them is that correct?
