I have two SATA hard drives mirrored and formatted as dynamic disks. My computer stopped finding them so I I took one out and put it in a external SATA to USB enclosure. When I plug it into any of my other computers USB ports the computer see a new USB device but won't give me a drive letter. I can see the external drive in partition magic and it shows the drive letter as * . How can I get a drive letter or change the drive from Dynamic to NTFS or just get  the data off this drive?

Not sure that you can.

You may have to import it as a foreign storage, but not sure if that is an option if dynamic.


I hope this helps !
