Unable to Mirror NTFS Volume?

My buddy can successfully mirror his FAT volumes (Uses Adaptec Ultra Wide SCSI), but can't seem to mirror his NTFS drives.  Any thoughts?

also....

What type of mirroring are you doing ie., disk mirroring or duplexing? Are the hard disks partitioned the same?

Mirroring NTFS is the same, in terms of proceedure, as mirroring FAT.

You must make sure that the drive you are creating the mirror on has sufficient free space to mirror the partition. Do not format the free space.

In Drive Manager, select the drive you want to create the mirror of, hold the control key and select the free space area on the disk you want to create the mirror on, select Establish Mirror from the Fault Tolerance menu.

If that doesn't work, please tell me what the error message is.

Hope that helps.
