  • software mirror on a extended partition

    Hello all

    I just installed w2k3 with exch2003.
    I have 2 drives both 160 gigs but not identical
    both disks are dynamic
    I was setting up a software mirror

    first drive c: 20 gig
    e: 130 gig ( it's an extented partition )

    I was able to mirror c:

    but I'm not able to mirror e:- the 'add a mirror' tab is greyed out
    this is where exchange is installed as well
    Drive e: is 129.51 gigs

    The unallocated space on the 2nd drive is 129.48 gigs

    so my question is does -the unallocatede space have to be exact or is this close enough or is it because it is a extended partition.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    It has to be exact or larger. You may be able to use Partition Magic (or similar) to resize the smaller partition to the correct size or make the larger partition a tad smaller.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      for your help ...

      FYI when you convert a basic disk to dynamic the extended partition becomes a simple volume .....
