  1. What happens when a striped and mirrored drive dies?


    So im just wondering, how does Windows react when one of the drives making up half of a striped volume in disk management dies? Does Windows continue to mount and allow me to view what’s on the other drive?


    What about when this happens to a mirrored volume? Is the surviving drive still mountable and would I be able to recover my files? Does Windows solicit a new drive to rebuild the mirror?


    I am asking this because I’m looking for some basic backup solutions and after hearing about countless horror stories of software based raid controllers (disk management) malfunctioning and causing serious data loss, I’m honestly considering just mounting both backup drives separately and using something like SyncToy to mirror one to the other.

    My Drive Turned Into Dynamic Disk ! Please Help me !!! What happens when a striped and mirrored drive dies? :(

    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.
