As kdf mentions, the use of shortcuts (or links or mounts) is what is
required. I store music in several locations too and this works very well
for me. However, you must avoid circular links (having the
drives/directories point to each other) or you will create a scanning mess.
I avoid accidental circular shortcuts by pointing SlimServer to a "Music"
directory containing no music, just shortcuts to the storage locations.

I assume you are running Windows. If not, the concept still should apply
but you will have to modify it accordingly for your O/S.
