  1. Disk Mirror - Backup


    I have a question I want to mirror the primary C: drive using another internal SSD using the disk management tool. I want to have an exact mirror Is this recommended or should I image or clone the drive using an external HDD. Second question is the mirror two way or one way? Thanks for help appreciate it.

  2. Disk mirror failed redundancy: Remove mirror or reactivate volume?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    The cause for Failed Redundancy would be that half, but not both halves, of a mirrored volume was imported. In Disk Management, the imported half of the mirrored volume receives Failed Redundancy status, while the disk that holds the
    half of the mirror that was not imported receives Missing status. You can import the Missing disk at a later time to restore redundancy.



    The solution for Failed Redundancy is to move all disks that span this volume to the new computer at the same time, and then import all of the disks together.



    The complete solution is giving in the section A mirrored volume's status is Data Not Redundant from
    Troubleshooting Disk Management.



    You may also refer the section A dynamic disk's status is Offline or Missing from the above article and try the troubleshooting steps.



    If you are still facing any issues related to Mirroring, then I suggest you to post your query in
    IT Pro TechNet forums, where we have support professionals who are well equipped with the knowledge on Hard Disk Mirroring.



    Hope it helps.

  3. Formatting a mirrored 6TB disk not possible?

    HI,

    I have done that but it does not work as with all the other disks I had mirrored earlier.

    Do you have other suggestions?

    Disk Mirror - Backup

    My Drive Turned Into Dynamic Disk ! Please Help me !!! Disk Mirror - Backup :(

    If you right click the Pen Drive do you get either of the options, 'Break Mirrored Volume' or 'Remove Mirror'?

    To break a mirrored set, follow these steps:

    • In Disk Management, right-click one of the drives in the mirrored set, and then choose Break Mirrored Volume.
    • Confirm that you want to break the mirrored set by clicking Yes.
    • If the volume is currently in use, you'll see another warning dialog box. Confirm that it's okay to continue by clicking Yes.

    To remove a mirror, follow these steps:

    • In Disk Management, right-click one of the volumes in the mirrored set, and then choose Remove Mirror
    • In the Remove Mirror dialog, select the disk from which to remove the mirror.
    • If the mirror contains a boot or system volume, you should remove the mirror from the secondary drive rather than the primary. For example, if Drive 0 and Drive 1 are mirrored, remove Drive 1 rather than Drive 0
    • Confirm the action when prompted. All data on the removed mirror is deleted.
