I installed Win 7 Ultimate on my system and it has two disk drives.
When Win 7 was setup, it partitioned Disk 0 as:
- 100MB for "System"
- The rest for C: (incl. boot, page file, crash dump)
The machine is working fine. But now I want to mirror Disk 0 in case it ever crashes. So I plan to setup Disk 1 to mirror Disk 0.
So I change Disk 0 to a Dynamic disk and then add a mirror on Disk 1. To my surprise, it grabbed a hunk of Disk 1 and mirrored C:. But it didn't mirror the 100MB System.
Well...that's no good - if Disk 0 dies, I want to be able to boot off Disk 1, put in a new disk, resync, and be back in business with a minimum of fuss.
When I click on the System partition and say "Add Mirror", it asks me to select a disk. I select Disk 1 and it gives the error "No extents were found for the plex".
Here is what my disks look like now: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7993889/forum/disk_win7.png
How can I have Disk 1 be a complete mirror of Disk 0 so that if Disk 0 dies, Disk 1 is ready to run?
