Cloning Dynamic Disks?

Posted on 2007-10-04

We installed a fresh copy of server 2003 64bit about a month or two ago, in a rush we forgot to setup raid 1 via windows disk management. Now that disk is starting to get bad blocks....

Does anyone know of any software that will clone dynamic disks? So far, i've tried true image 9.1 (trial) and paragon 8.5.1.

    Ah i can apparently convert the dynamic disk to basic without losing any data using paragon!

    Has anyone had a go of this?

    Ghost 7.5 always cloned anything I gave it to clone.  You'd have to put it into sector-by-sector mode, of course.  (Too bad Ghost 10 can't clone drives at all anymore.)  Can't you put True Image into a sector-by-sector mode and copy it that way?  Or maybe Acronis Disk Director?
