  1. Problem With Restore of Dynamic Disk Data, Not the Boot Drive


    This is also posted on Windows Seven Forums. The question is whether or not at this point I would be better off trying to restore data to a fresh install of Windows 10. Please read description below of what happened
    64 bit OS Windows 7
    ASUS MBAMD Processor
    16 Gig of RAM1 SSD C: With Win 7 OSI made a new PCs for my wife in 2014 moving the users folder to a hard drive E: This worked fine for years. I had been using either Acronis or now Macrium Reflect to backup the OS and Data drives separately. I had no problem restoring the OS or Data when there were problems. But recently, I violated the keep it simple principle!I now realize, quite foolishly, wanted to make a RAID 1 windows 7 software mirror and added a second HD. I created the mirror from Disk Management.The mirror initially worked but then I got a failed redundancy error. There was nothing wrong with the physical drive.I backed up the data drive using the free version of Macrium Reflect.I broke the mirror and now I am unable to logon getting the profile service problem. Somehow, the profile must be corrupted. I can boot to Windows but cannot log on. I have two full backups one prior to the mirror failure and one after.I now understand that Macrium does not backup the Dynamic state of the disk. I have tried restoring the data to either a basic disk or a dynamic disk created using diskpart but nothing seems to be working. I am wondering if I should try a fresh install of Windows 10

    Should changing to Windows 10 be a better solution, what is the best way to do it?

    Should I restore the data to a basic disk and assign and drive letter to it, that the fresh install will automatically find the data drive......or, do I have to write a script as I did for Windows 7 moving the users folder?

    Please, any help would be appreciated. Any help would really be appreciated. I have no idea what to do at this point.

    :)

    how to convert Dynamic disk to Basic disk without data loss ?

    Hi,

    The process of conversion is quite tricky but not exactly that complicated. Suggested safe is to have your data cloned and work on the clone instead of the original. This suggestions and steps were provided by one of the Microsoft Community Forum MVP's,
    John John__ in his response on this thread. Follow the steps carefully
    to be able to avoid data loss.

    I hope it helps. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to come back to us.

  4. Problem With Restore of Dynamic Disk Data, Not the Boot Drive

    Op[tions for a failed dynamic disk

    One of my raid 1 drives failed and I removed it. the remining drive is functioning well (have 3 TB of data used; OS is on a separated drive; all data are backed up in multiple splaces).

    1. Is there any disadvantage to leaving the dynamic disk as is even though there is no corresponding mirrored drive?
    2. Can i replace my failed raid drive and establish it as a dynamic drive to work with the other dynamic one without having to remove the partitions on the still functional dynamic drive and start again?
    3. if i have to "start from scratch" would it be more effective to set up Windows 10 storage drives instead of RAID1?
