Our Server 2003 went down with the primary hard drive going bad. The secondary/backup drive is ok but I can not read it as the server will not boot up.
When I pull the backup drive and configure as secondary drive on another PC I can only see it in the Disk Management and it shows as a "dynamic" disk and foreign.
When I right-click on it I have two options 1) Import Foreign Disk and 2) Convert to Basic Disk.
Will one of these option allow me to read the hard drive and will I lose or corrupt the data on the hard drive if I use one of these options?
Or is there another method to recover the data on the hard drive?
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
