Clone dynamic disk

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have a client with a computer running SBS server 2k3. He has 2 hard drives in the computer set to mirror. The hard drives are bad and i need to clone one of them to get him back up and running asap. Can anyone suggest any decent programs that i can use to clone a dynamic disk?

Acronis True Image (server edition) can deal with dynamic disks
I am looking for something a little less expensive. I priced that software at $700

Symantec BESR 8 is available as a free 60 day trial.

HDClone has limited support for dynamic disks, and has a free edition. I'd give it a try, I swear by it.

i am running vista on my computer and it wont recognize the dynamic disk for me to clone. I cant run it on the server because it wont boot up.
Symantec BESR 8 comes as a bootable CD ISO that you can use to bypass Vista and it's limitations.

HDClone can be used as either a bootable floppy or CD. When you download the free version, it builds the correct image and builds the CD/floppy, depending on your setup.
