  • windows 2008 r2 mirroring

    Hi,
    I have installed one 2008r2 in a computer with 2 hdds,(disk0,disk1). After installation when I checked the diskmanager the disk0 has the system reserve partition and disk1 has the Os installation files. Now I am totally confused how to setup the soft mirror? is there any way to move the two partitions on the same disk and create the mirror ?

    thanks in advance for any help?

    I have removed a duplicate of the same post. You perhaps did this accidentally as was within the same forum.

      Can you please post a screenshot of your disk configuration but as a guess you have one partition per drive, with no free space, so no mirroring at the moment

        That was accidently happened.

        Currently there is no mirroring and only one partition on each disk.

          You will need to clear space on a drive equal to the size of the partition on the other drive before you can add a mirror

          Your best bet will be to
          Shrink the OS partition to a suitable size
          Create a new partition on Disk 0 for data
          Move the contents of Disk 1 to the data partition
          Delete all partitions on Disk 1
          Add mirrors of the Disk 0 partitions onto the (empty) Disk 1
