I need to create a software raid on SBS Essentials 11. I have two 160gb drives. I understand how to mirror the first drive but the option is grayed out. Not sure why.
This is really a two part question, Server Folder error and Mirror drive option not active but the resolution will allow me to create the software raid or mirror drive option in SBSE
Drive 1 has been setup with Server folder and contains the correct info; client computer backups, users, and company.
After I formatted the Drive 2 so I could see it to create the software raid.
Drive 2 has "Server folder" on it that I didn't create. There are no sub folders or files in it.
Can I just delete this folder? Then will the option be active to mirror drive? I didn't want to just delete it because now when I try to add folders they direct it to Drive 2 to Server folder.
I want to keep the functionality of Server Folders
Error when I try to add Server Folder change location to Drive 1 Server Folders.
"Server Folder can't be added to a folder that contains a shared folder, select a different file location".
Just for clarification why I am using software raid;
I could not use hardware raid on install due to the fact SBS Essentials only read drive as 149gb and this doesn't meet requirements, most be 160gb. So I am trying to do the software raid.
