    Mirroring Issues: Create Mirror of existing drive


    I have two important data drives that I had mirrors of in Windows 7. When I got a new system and moved the drives over to my Windows 10 computer, the mirror did not stay synced as expected. I don't remember exactly what happened (it was back in May) but I thought I fixed the problem when the I finally saw the message saying that it was re-synching (can't remember if that is the exact word used in the interface).

    Anyway, I noticed today that the drives were now separate and not working as a mirror... glad nothing happened in the meantime. I am really irritated that my upgrade broke the mirror... but such is life (and Microsoft) I guess. So I deleted the volume that was not up to date hoping to recreate the mirror. However, things don't appear to work the same as they did in Windows 7. How do a create a mirror of an existing drive? I was able to do that in Windows 7.

    The drive is probably around 5 years old so I need to get this done ASAP (I don't remember exactly when I bought it but it is my oldest drive). I need to re-mirror the partitions. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Mirroring function

    Just to make sure that this issue doesn't only occur on your particular PC, have you tried mirroring a different PC to the same TV? Did the same issue occur?

    Have you also tried mirroring on the same PC before? Did it work successfully? If yes, what were the recent changes made before mirroring failed to work?

    To make sure that you got the right steps in projecting a wireless display with Miracast, you may check these steps:

    • Turn ON the Miracast option if your TV comes with built-in Miracast support.
    • Press the Windows + I keys to go to
      Settings
      .
    • Click Devices, then Connected Devices.
    • Click on "Add a Device" and wait for the adapter to appear in the list. Click on the receiving adapter.

    I'll be waiting for your response.

    How to create new user account that mirrors an existing user account

    I want to create a new user account that mirrors an existing user account in Windows 10 Pro. The new user account would have same access as the mirrored account.

    Mirrored drives

    Windows 10 does not recognize Windows 7 mirrored drives. Is there a way to correct this without reverting to Windows 7 to un-mirror the drives and re-installing Windows 10?
