And then we look at data recovery. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=dynamic+disks+xp+DATA+RECOVERY
To save your files the easy path is to put it back and put a new drive in the external to copy the old drive to.
I used to have a SATA HD (dynamic) internally connected in my PC.
I decided that I wanted to make it portable so I purchased an external USB/SATA enclosure, threw it in and plugged the USB connector on my PC.
Problem : in the Disk Management utility, it shows the disk but with a red cross and says "Failed". And sadly, it says that it's 100% space free.
My only option (right click) is to "Delete Volume"
Is there any way to recover my data or am I condemned to erase it?
thanks in advance.
