Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a Windows Server 2003 which have a drive D: have a 600GB data. This drive is created by two disks (i.e. Disk0 and Disk1) with Spanned Volume. Now, the Disk 1 is damaged/crash. The Windows 2003 can't recognize the drive anymore. Any partition tools recommend to me?

Best regards,

There is no redundancy in spanned volumes, so I think you are going to have to restore from backup.
