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

Yes, you can do this using GUI or t-sql, I'm not if that's what you are asking..

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.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is usually not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

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