Windows 7: Windows mirroring

07 Apr 2017   #11

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thanks, Jeannie. I've still been doing more searching on the web and what little bit I can piece together it seems that Windows mirroring is one of those that requires you to rebuild, which is too bad and kind of silly, IMO.

My laptop does have a second HD bay in it, but requires getting a part to actually secure the hard drive into there. I may try seeing if I can get my Boss to authorize expenditure on it and go that way, then use the HD in the docking station as another backup location.

I didn't mean to appear in my posts as badgering in any way.
I gave just my thoughts and recommendation, not knowing your knowledge on the subject.

With my limited knowledge of all the in's and out's of Raid, I do have a thought.
Because you are using a external docking for Raid, I believe that when you disconnect the docking station you break the Raid setup and it will need to be established again.

I will leave knowing I tried to help but wasn't very successful in helping.

Their should be others drop by and give advice.

I will monitor the thread and try and learn things about Raid hopefully.

Mirroring partition to VHD
Hi, I'm wondering if its possible to copy a partition entirely (including boot record) onto a VHD file I made using diskpart. EDIT: I went out and got Norton Ghost to do the job... because no internet search was turning up how to do it without Ghost.
