Specs: Windows 2003
Hi Everyone
Unfortunately I run other Windows system 2003 with some dynamic and spanned disks. I didn’t change anything. I would like just check something. I just start system, check something and turn it off. After I back to the old system, and run it with the older disk in disk management I have seen something like that:

Volume: red cross
Layout: spanned
Type: Dynamic
Status: Failed
Capacity: 1676GB
Possible reactivate volume option

Disk 2, Basic, 558GB, Online, Unallocated
Disk 5, Dynamic, 1117GB, Online, Failed – possible reactivate disk option
Missing, Dynamic, 558GB, Offline, Failed – possible reactivate disk option

So it looks, like a have lost the volume 1600GB. Is anybody how can help me? What should I do to repair the volume and restore the data?

Thank you, regards
Pawel

You would need to replace the failed drive, rebuild the span and restore from backup.

Spanned drives should never be used for anything but temp data. Either drive hiccups you lost the entire array. Hopefully you had full and daily backups that you tested to be sure they worked.

Rule of thumb is you mirror the OS [raid1] and raid the data [5, 0+1, 10 recommended]
