  1. Disk Management not showing disk properly


    Here is the background:

    I have a RAID 1 array moved from another PC. One disk showed as healthy, Online while the second one was disabled because of conflicting signature.

    I wanted to do a mirroring in Windows as opposed to creating a new RAID 1 because I want to preserve the data.


    I have converted the first healthy drive to "Dynamic"

    Brought the other drive "Online"

    Tried mirroring but I was not given the option in the right click menu.

    Converted the second Drive to "Dynamic"

    After this step the second drive is messed up see attached screenshot blue circled sections.

    I cannot do anything with the problem drive - only option is to "Convert to Basic" but when I try it, I get an error message about drive being offline.


    Still the drive shows fine in Explorer highlighted on the right


    Really messed up - I would really appreciate some help. Thank you.

  2. Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...




    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)


    enter in
    DISKPART
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.
    ASSIGN


    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    EDITED.

    any problems, post back ^^


    Still EDITING *Stick Out Tongue Disk Management not showing disk properly :p

    side question, have you tried restarting the PC?

  3. Disk Management

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for providing the detail that was requested previously. Since the disk management screen that you saw is showing greyed out options, we suggest that you follow the steps below to change the partition type of your internal drive:

    • Open Disk Management then right click the partition on the disk you want to covert and select Delete Volume.
    • Once you complete the process you will see the whole disk shown as two separate unallocated spaces. Right-click the disk and select Convert to GPT disk.

    After the conversion, you will be able to use the whole disk and then you can create new separate partitions.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.
