Here is my Setup:
2 identical Samsung128GB SSD Drives, Dynamic Drives, Mirrored, each with the following:
60GB (C: OS Drive)
62GB (D: Data)
This was the default when I installed SBS 2011 Essentials, which forces a 60 GB OS Drive. I am trying to change the disk(s) from Dynamic back to Basic, realizing that I won't be able to mirror the OS drive. I used the built-in Windows Backup to do a "bare metal" backup successfully to an external USB Drive (bare metal includes the C: drive but not the D: drive). BTW, there are another 2 physical drives, also dynamic and mirrored, each with 2 partitions/volumes (F: and G: drives), but these were not included in the original backup.
Here is my error:
I used BIOS to disable all drives except the 2nd SSD, which I wiped out using DISKPART's clean function. When I try to restore to this 2nd SSD, I get this error:
"There is not enough disk space on the system to perform the restore operation. Add another disk or replace one of the existing disks and try the restore operation. (0X80042408)"
I have also tried restoring to a new 500GB internal drive, and it gives the same error. Am I doing something wrong?
