Windows 2008 Dynamic Disk Error!  I have a client 2008 Server that is reporting error on Disk0 C: drive.  The server has 5 2TB SATA drives all set as dynamic disks. Disks. Disk0 Has a 100MB System Reserve Partiton, 931GB NTFS C: Partition & 931GB Extended NTFS F: Drive Partition that is not being used.  Disk1-3 are in a Dynamic RAID5 array and have no issue. I used to be able to do an Acronis disk image of the entire server but then started failing.  

Looking at the Disk Manager Disk0 reports Errors. If I right click on Disk0 in the Disk Manager I have the option to Reactivate Disk. Sounds like a good step but I am afraid this might break it and this is the sole Domain Controller for the small office.

Is it safe to Reactivate Disk0?  It is weird since it seems to be working with error.

I also may have a bad block on the disk.  I am game to replace the disk but since it is a stand alone dynamic disk and Acronis Disk Image is not working I am not sure of the best path to migrate the OS and Data without losing it all.

I havent worked with Dynamic Disks very much and can use soem EXPERT opionion.

I am looking for desktop imaging system recommendations. A little background, we are currently using Acronis but have outgrown it. I am looking into Quest Kace and SmartDeploy.

I am liking the features of SmartDelpoy much more and would prefer to have a more modern imaging system like that as opposed to Kace. I know there are other options out there like VMWare Workspace ONE, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, and CloneZilla.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these or would be able to recommend something better? We would prefer a cloud solution, if there is one.

My thumb drive folder is  "read-only" if  I  look at its property under Window 7.  When I tried to un-check the box it seemed did it at the moment, but after I click "OK" and look at it again, it's still there!  I just can't get the read-only box unchecked.  On the other hand, I can still put new files and new folders in this so-called  "read-only" with no problem, and only to notice some user program I created failed to access this read-only folder with a " access denied" error. Strange to me --- but if I any experts can provide a solution or enlight me with knowledge of what's happening, I would highly appreciated.

Thanks

We are attempting to run a Windows XP system in VMWare Workstation that was converted from a physical to virtual. We used VMWare converter to create a virtual image of an existing physical system. When we boot XP VM it wants us to activate with Microsoft. At this point we cannot even get into the system, so until we can activate the system is useless. I have never seen it not let you at least get into the OS. I just want to make it clear that the physical XP system is working fine, but after the P -> V we cannot get into the virtual system. I tried changing the product key but nothing is working. I even contacted our department that handles our Microsoft Volume Licensing and he said they don't even have Windows XP x86 license keys listed anymore. Finally, I used the phone number on the activation screen and called Microsoft. They said Windows XP is not supported and really didn't offer much help. Unfortunately upgrading this system is not an option as the unique software installed the system is no longer available.

How can I get this system activated? Someone at work recommended using sysprep on the system. Is this because this is an HP system that has an OEM version of Windows XP which will only run on an HP? The host system is a Dell system that is running Windows 10. That's why I wanted to change the serial but it's not taking it.

Lastly, when we converted this physical we set both the XP physical and the Dell Windows 10 machine to local IP addresses as to not put …

There's a request for "Change runbook" that documents/records changes from Day 1
so that in the event of bad changes (malicious or inadvertent ones) being introduced
over along the line of changes, we can rebuild a server/system back selectively,
dropping the "bad" change so that we can bring up the system to a "clean" slate.

Was told it's not "Change Control" nor CRs that we are looking at here.

I've suggested that a 'bare metal' backup be done with incremental backups (think
EMC has one such product) but this is not what the team requires.

Any document, tools or method are much appreciated.

I have a number of robots which are actually computers running xp sp3 which are connected to a windows 2003 server domain.,

I would like these computers to auto-log in when the power is first applied, using a domain account, instead of stopping at the log in screen.

I've gone to the users section of the control panel and the message You can not change this users password appears.  I suspect that's because the user is a domain account.

Can anyone help?

The Acronis SDI Appliance is a new plug-n-play solution with pre-configured Acronis Software-Defined Infrastructure software that gives service providers and enterprises ready access to a fault-tolerant system, which combines universal storage and high-performance virtualization.

I had this question after viewing Need to kill an application that is auto starting on Windows CE 5.0.

I have a remote device running Windows Embedded CE 6.   I would like to add some bench automation to this unit, but like most target devices ti has an autostart routine that puts an app on a touch screen with limited functions.    I am confident I can get the automation I need if I can only poke around in the file system of the target device.   I am trying to connect to the device remotely with a Windows10 machine, so activesync is out.  I did try a windows XP machine and activesync failed, so the target device is not set up for that.   That leaves TCP/IP I guess and a connection with Visual Studio tools?   Is there a better tool?   VS requires that I install Corecon files to the target, but if I could install files to the target, I would not need Visual Studios.....  The unit can be attached with OEM software to run remotely as well as firmware updates are installed via USB connection, so I am pretty sure there is an agent installed to the target that allows this.   The unit installs to devices under Windows10 as "USB Remote NDIS Network Device".  I apologize for my novice approach here, but I am more of a hardware gy than software.   I am willing to hire this hel pout if anyone knows a contractor that works with embedded windows.     Thanks so much for reading!!

In our company, we have a mixture of Windows 10 Pro and Windows XP Professional installations joining a workgroup, NOT domain.

Usually the sharing folder between computers is working well, except of some rare cases, were a "turn on discovery" or "turn off pasword protection" is needed after some updates on Windows 10.

Recently a problem appears which i believe is related to 1803 version.

The machines that upgraded to 1803 version although they can browse every machine on network, they cannot acces them by clicking on them with message "Windows cannot access \\xxxx". Strangely they can access them by typing \\xxxx in the address bar of file explorer.

Does anyone knows where to look at for more information?

Thanks in advance
