i have a windows 2000 server box with two 80 gig drives in it. they used to be configured in a mirror using the built-in mirror option in the disk management. the server was shut down do to the blackout. it was properly shutdown by a user when power went off before the UPS was drained. when the server was restarted, it would hang with the HD Act. LED on solid during bootup. I removed one of the drives and it started fine. The drive i took out, i ran diagnostics software, wrote all zeros and stress tested the drive, it was fine. i then reinstalled the drive and tried to re-establish the mirror. i get an operation failed due to i/o failure. i open the event log and it's full of errors sayin' bad blocks.
what is the best course of action to move all the data onto another drive? i usually would use ghost, however with the drives being dynamic, there are conflicts. suggestions please. hopefully none of which will result in a re-install. =) thank you.
