Imaging A Dynamic Volume Under Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2006-05-18
I have a Windows 2000 server (with SP4) which has two 250GB IDE hard drives connected via a PCI-based SIIG CN2496 ATA133 controller board. Two newer 512MB IDE Maxtor drives were purchased to replace the 250GB drives, which were mirrored. We removed the mirroring, and attempted to use Acronis Disk Director Enterprise (under Windows 2000 Server, not booting off a floppy or CD-ROM) to image the primary dynamic drive onto one one of the 500MB drives. The problem is, Acronis doesn't see the 250GB dynamic drive at all. I tried Ghost using a bootable disk, it sees the dynamic drive and Maxtor just fine, but the imaging process bombs out after 45% completion.
I'm going to try a few other things, but does anyone know why Acronis cannot see (or refuses to list) the dynamic drive?
