Windows 7: Spanned Volume Recovery

Spanned Volume Recovery

Hi all,

First I'd like to say that I'm an idiot, I just deleted my spanned volume . I'm about to run the MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition v8.1.1 (free version), and just wanted to run this by you guys so I don't mess it up even more. Here's the setup I had that I am trying to recover.

Code:
Disk 0 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 1 - 64G NTFS System, Boot drive (C:)
Disk 2 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 3 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 4 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
... a few others that don't matter
Disk 9 - 2.5 T iSCSI Spanned volume (F:)
So, I was trying to pull the iSCSI Disk 9 off the other spanned volumes on F:. I did a Delete Volume, and they all disappeared. Was I supposed to use Shrink Volume? Anyway, there were a lot of threads about recovering partitions, but none of them I saw had spanned volumes. Is recovering a spanned volume the same as recovering a single partition, multiple times? Or is there something I'm missing?

I am in the MiniTool Partition Wizard, and I see all of the disks that I want to recover. However, it doesn't allow me to select multiple disks. So the only option that I have with this tool is to go through the recovery process on each disk individually. Is this the right method? If so, how do I get the full spanned volume back after each disk is recovered?



Thanks in advance!

Just a quick update. I've been scanning the disks for partition data using the MiniTool, and it's come back with some strange results. Disk 0 shows an abnormally large partition. And after a long while of scanning, I haven't found any partitions on the other disks yet.

Even though the first disk is 931.51GB, after finding the partition, the MiniTool is displaying it as a capacity of 6167.3GB (the sum of the entire spanned volume). Does this mean disk 0 holds the partition data for all 5 disks, and recovery of this will undelete the partition on all disks?

Thanks again!

Can I clone a drive from a spanned volume?
Hi, I have a spanned volume setup with 4 drives. One of the drives is starting to throw read errors which is preventing WHS from backing it up (Yikes!). Is it possible to clone the drive with the errors and to reinsert a new drive into the array? Can the new drive be bigger? Thanks!
