  1. Backing up secondary data pool to it's own Drive?


    I've got five hard drives in my computer:

    C: - a 1TB M.2 SSD
    D: - a data pool consisting of two 2.5" 1TB drives which contains my Steam Library
    S: - a 3.5" 1TB drive that my User data is backed up to
    E: - a 3.5" 2TB drive that I want to clone or mirror the D: drive too.

    I've been trying to figure out the best way to keep the D: drives and the E: drive synced in case of drive failure (with the D: drive being the primary drives but I'm not sure of the best way to do that. It doesn't have to be constantly in sync so a 24-hour or longer job will work fine, but I'd like to avoid doing any raid wizardy because I don't have the room to break or merge nested data pools.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 1909 Causes Secondary Hard Drive to not be Recognized

    Installing the Windows 10 1909 Update causes my secondary hard drive to not be recognized.

    Steps to confirm issue:

    • Secondary drive not visible in Windows Explorer
    • Secondary drive not visible in device manager
    • Secondary drive not visible in disk manager

    Steps to replicate issue:

    • Installing 1909 update

    Steps to resolve issue:

    • Uninstall 1909 update

    Since updates can only be delayed for so long, an actual fix would be appreciated.

    How to remove a bad drive in Windows 10 storage spaces pool

    Could someone list the steps involved in replacing a bad drive from a Windows 10 storage spaces pool? I cannot find any info on the Microsoft support site that is specific to Windows 10. Also, could you list the steps to remove a 'good' drive and replace
    it with another drive if the process is different?

    Backing up secondary data pool to it's own Drive?

    W10 File History Not Backing Up Internal Secondary Drive.

    We suggest that you select only the secondary drive when backing up and see if the files are copied to the drive.

    Do let us know if the issue persists.

    Regards.
