Default Dynamic disk status invalid.

Have a problem...

Before installing Vista, I tought of making a backup on a second internal
hard disk which a bought and installed on the original XP professional
machine, I found myself to be very smart doing this.
Unfortunatly now that Vista is installed on this machine the disk is not
accessible. disk manager says "dynamic disk status invalid"? What can/should
I do to gain control over this disk again? I can convert it to a standard
disk (only option available in disk manager) beause then I will loos the
information it contains.

Thanks in advance.

What version of Vista do you have? Any version of Windows with Home in the
name cannot access dynamic disks. If you have a Home version you'd have to
connect the drive to a computer that has an appropriate version of Windows
then use the Import a foreign disk wizard to access the files.

Hello Kerry,

What your telling seams to make sense...installed vista "home premium".
I'll take the disk out and install it in an other computer running
appropriate version of Windows . I'll let you know if this worked.

Many thanks!
Peter

Hello Kerry,

You'r "a god" it worked instantly and I was able to save the families
pictures from the disk. Afterwards made the disk static and it now works also
on the Vista's basic edition.

Again many thanks.

Hi,

Well, I don't have a second PC computer,
so what could I do to get this drive recognized?

Mik

For Dynamic Disk Invalid, typecally your operating system can't support
for dynamic disk. such as WinXP Home Edition, Win7 Home Edition will
show a dynamic invalid disk in disk management. It seems that Dynamic
Disk Converter 3.0 can revert an dynamic unreadable disk and invalid
dynamic disk back to basic disk. I tested the program on VMware fine.
