Using Mirror Volume Of A Basic Disk Without Converting It To Dynamic


How to use mirror volume of a basic disk without converting it to dynamic disk? I have two 500gb hard drive attached to my pc running windows 7. I want the software drive (d:) [in the primary hard disk] should be backed up automatically on the other hard drive. I learned a lot from the internet about mirror volume in dynamic disks. In that case i need to convert both hard disks to dynamic disk.

My question is, is there any other way to make a mirror disk of the drive to the secondary hard disk without converting the primary hard drive to dynamic disk? [I have no problem to convert the second hard disk to dynamic disk, but i don't want the first hard drive to be converted to dynamic. ] If it is not possible via windows, is there any 3rd party software to do seamless backup of a drive to different disk without any dynamic disk conversion ?

Multiboot With Dynamic Disk

I have a laptop (only space for one disk) with a new disk installed. Due to the number of partitions it has been converted to dynamic disk under windows 7. Will this support the installation of a second edition of windows 7 in its own partition or does the fact that it is a dynamic disk preclude such an option? If it will work am i right in thinking that dynamic disks will not support a linux partition due to the incompatibility with gpt

Striping Existing System Volume / Disk Drive

I'm just wondering can i convert my current single os disk to be striped in windows 7? I'd like to get a bit of extra hdd performance but i don't want to have to reinstall windows. So i'm wondering if you can do this on a live system disk.

My board has some hardware raid support but i think that'll wipe the disks if i try and make a raid with them. I don't think the hardware raid performance on these consumer mother boards is that great anyway so a software raid will be fine if i can do it.

Converting Wtv Files

Folks, win7 records tv shows in this wtv format and has a built-in tool to convert them to dvr-ms format. I use ps3 media server and it doesn't recognize wtv yet so i have to convert. The problem is, wtv converter that comes with win7 starts the conversion process and then dies off after converting like 5-6 minutes of the show. How can i diagnose this problem? Would a codec pack cause this? Better yet, is there an alternative converter for wtv into whatever?

Converting .mswmm Files To Live Movie Maker

Can i convert movie maker files to windows live movie maker? I just spent 1 week editing a video for my daughter's 2nd birthday coming up on sunday. I was running vista and using windows movie maker. My computer kept crashing when i went to publish the file so i thought i would try purchasing windows 7 to see if i could publish this 29 minute video. I even took out all the transitions and it doesn't have any music. Now, after spending all day installing windows 7, i find out movie maker isn't included and all my work is in a file i can't retrieve. If i purchase windows live movie maker, will it convert my . Mswmm file?

How To Use Bing Dynamic Rss Theme?

Windows 7 theme problem - bing dynamic (rss theme)i have used many of the new windows 7 themes without problems, but i can't get the rss theme called bing dynamic to work. When i download it and open it, all that's in the theme is the empty theme (no images), so it leaves my desktop black. I thought it might start working after waiting a minute for it to download an image, but it's been over 30 minutes and still no image. It doesn't have the rss symbol on the theme in my list like it does on my friend's computer (where it does work), but for the picture album, it has the right location: a web address for a theme server. How do i get it to work?

Raid 1 (mirror) Across 3 Or More Devices

We have been running a mirrored 2-drive setup happily since installing windows 7. However now that a sale has allowed us to add a third disk we are unable to locate an instruction manual or obvious disk management action to either add a new drive to an existing mirror, extend an existing mirror to a new device, or break/re-create the mirror across more than two devices (the dialogue does not seem to allow multiple disk selection). This is additionally frustrating since every other modern operating system, even free ones, has supported multiply redundant raid-1 storage for a very long time. Windows 7 ultimate surely also supports that solution?

Dynamic Pen Feedback In Win 7 - Tablet Pc Input Service

There is a wonderful video on the web explaining how to disable this annoying feature, but it only works in higher versions of windows 7 due to lack of expedite. Msc. Here is the video. http://vimeo.com/8567716

Using only the "services" part of this fix does not help.completely disabling it made the feedback disappear only until i put my computer to sleep. After the feedback returned, i re-enabled, then disabled "tablet pc input service". Now i can't even get it to work for a second. Also, geek squad didn't know. The sooner the reply the better i use my tablet for my job and trying to draw with that splash is impossible

Upgrade From Home Basic To Ultimate

I will be ordering a custom hp dv8t soon, and it will come with windows 7 home premium. I can purchase 7 ultimate for about 100 bucks after academic discount, so it would be cheaper than spending 200 bucks getting ultimate pre-installed. I was wondering if it comes with 7 home premium, can i purchase 7 ultimate and do an in place upgrade, or is a fresh install mandatory for this?I was thinking, maybe after i purchase 7 ultimate, go into windows anytime upgrade, would i be able to enter the key off of 7 ultimate i purchased from academic superstore and upgrade in place?

Mirror Drive (raid 1) Issues

I upgraded from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional to obtain the ability to mirror 2 hard drives. After i mirrored them, i had an alert icon on the 2nd drive, and then after a time, an alert icon appeared on the main drive. So, now both have alert icons. It says "re-syncing" and sometimes will show a percentage, but never goes all the way through. If i close the window, it restarts the syncing. If the computer goes to sleep, the same thing appears to happen. Is the alert and "re-syncing" a normal part of the process? Do i need to keep the computer from sleeping during the process?

Disable Or Remove Raid 1 Mirror

How can i disable or remove raid 1 mirror in windows 7? I have just bought a new desktop with windows 7. I bought it on-line, and ticked the box marked "raid 1 mirror" without understanding properly what it meant. My machine is now here, and of course one hard disk is partitioned into two, whilst the other is invisible on my sytem and, i assume, just a copy of the data on disk one.

Now that i know what raid is, i realize i don't need it, and would like to have regular use of my two hard discs. I have the 64-bit windows 7 disc so can simply re-install windows 7 if need be, if that is the answer, but would welcome nice clear advice, please.

Ordinal 120 Could Not Be Located In The Dynamic Link Library Iertutil.dll

"the ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll", ie and many other programs won't start! Os: win7 home prem. X64 running as administrator, only user on machine. I installed a game recently and tried to run it and received this error, which causes it to crash each time. Doing the research, i found that this .dll pertains to ie8. Why a third-party game would utilize an ie8 .dll is beyond me.

I did a search for this and the answers all pointed to "uninstall and reinstall". Since i have win 7, there is no way to remove it completely or re-download the software again, so i went through add or remove programs > "turn windows features on or off" to uncheck/uninstall it, reboot, then check/reinstall it. I still get the error.

Other programs - ones i didn't think had anything to do with "iertutil.dll" - are now being affected by this as well, producing the exact same error. I ran revo uninstaller to uninstall the game and clean out any remaining files or registry items for it, but still get the error with some other applications, and ie still won't start.

One suggestion pointed to downloading the .dll from a third party website, but i could not find the correct version (8. 0. 7600. 16385), so i did not do this. Another post about a similar issue had a response instructing to do an sfc scan. I did.correction: sfc found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I have the log if needed.

Whatever happened to this .dll also has affected my ie8. When i click to open it, nothing happens. It doesn't open in the background and hang - task manager shows no "iexplorer.exe" anywhere. It just does nothing.system restore is not an option. I would really appreciate it if somebody could actually provide me with a good answer. I have not had a single good experience with these msa forums at all for any of my problems.

Aero Theme Changed To Windows Basic

I've just upgraded to windows 7 and am a little confused as to what is happening with my display settings. Last night i installed an old game on my laptop (caesar 3, sierra). I was dubious about whether or not this would install and to my surprise actually displayed correctly too.

However upon opening caesar 3 today, i get the message about the program not being able to run in aero theme and that the display has had to default to windows basic.

I'm totally confused as this didn't happen yesterday, and after running the 'aero' and 'display' troubleshooters, am no closer to isolating why this is happening.

To describe this a little better - the game now opens in a window (not maximized to full screen) and has that horrible green-purple rendering that i can only assume is occurring from altered display settings.

How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?

Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.

Opening .sln Files With Visual Basic

After installing, my computer told me that it needed to restart before it can take effect, except once i restarted, i couldn't find the program. I guess to sum it up- how do i open microsoft visual basic (i know i've installed it correctly) and secondly-  is there a program already installed on my computer that can open . Sln files?

Excel Visual Basic / Macro Editing

Ok, well heres the deal: i want to setup a macro that will change a cell's fill color based on the cell's value. So if its above 50, lets make it green, and if its below, lets make it red. This is in excel here is the code:

-The code starts here -

Sub colorfillfromvalue()
'
' colordesign macro
''
With selection. Interior

If (activecell. Formular1c1 >= "50") then
. Pattern = xlsolid
. Patterncolorindex = xlautomatic
.color = 5287936
. Tintandshade = 0
. Patterntintandshade = 0
End if
If (activecell. Formular1c1 < "50") then
. Pattern = xlsolid
. Patterncolorindex = xlautomatic
.color = 255
. Tintandshade = 0
. Patterntintandshade = 0
End if
End with
End sub

-The code ends here-

A) the fields are limited to double digit numbers. 100 and beyond, 9 and below are all coming out as red.

B) the macro only works for one cell at a time, how can i edit it so a large selection treats all cells separately?

Print Problem - Ie Prints Pdf File As Mirror Image

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is. I have asked hp (printer manufacturer) and they say that since it prints ok from the desktop, it is not a printer problem.

Moving Data From 1st Disk To 2nd Disk

I installed my w7 on a single disk pc then i added a second disk for data. I want to have all my data (documents, photos, music, etc. ) In this second disk. In xp, when i did so, i copy my documents from "documents and settings" folder to the new location (d:/) and i was done. Now in w7 i open the "user" folder i found that files are not on a single folder but that there are several document folders (images, documents, etc. ) And settings folders (favorites, etc. ). May i copy all the user folder to the new location or i must leave there some of them in c:/system/users? In xp, when i move my documents to d:, every thing was redirected there (default1 saving folder, default download folder, defautl music folder, etc. ) In w7, would happen the same? The link on the desktop will redirect me to the location or may continue pointing the old one.

Disk Read Error And Recovery Disk Not Working

I have a toshiba satellite c650 that has recently come up with a disk read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some potential solutions that i have read about on the internet. I have made a windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which also has windows 7 installed. When i use the recovery disk and it has loaded the files etc it just brings up a black screen and the cursor. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? I tried booting my acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine. Also does anyone have any suggestions as to why i am getting the 'disk read error - hit ctrl, alt and delete to restart' message?

Converting Outlook Mail Folders To Windows Mail

I copied my outlook express messages files to my new win7 pc and imported them into windows mail. After hours of running overnight, all of the messages were copied into one folder! I have over 100 folders but the windows mail did not replicate this structure.

Question 1- did i miss something or is windows mail incapable of converting over my outlook files properly (e.g. Into their respective folders).

Question 2- if this is something that cannot be done with import, can i import one dbx message file at a time into windows mail so that i can move each cluster or messages to a folder manually.

Error - Logonui Exe No Disk - Outlook Exe No Disk

I have windows 7 professional running 64 bit. A very annoying error pops up every five minutes or so. The message varies and can read "logonui exe no disk" or "outlook exe no disk" or "your favorite app. - No disk" depending on what i am running at the time. I have looked at many forums and can see that this error occurred in previous windows flavors. Some answers point to malware or infected file, others seem to think it's a corrupt install file. I have a fresh install of win 7. My previous os being xp.

I have reinstalled win7 and tried repair functions. No luck so far.

No Memory In Volume D: When Trying To Install

. I have a gateway. I don't know much about computers, but it's a quad core, has windows 7, 1tb hard drive, 8 gigs of ram. Something says "dx4300 - 01h" if that is relevant. Earlier today, i tried to install softimage modtool for practice in the 3d industry, so i went to  #this link and downloaded it# . So it was all going good, but once it actually started to install , this happened. http://i757. Photobucket.com/albums/xx215/mrfluffbutt/other/untitled.png

That's a link to a screen cap i took of the error, as well. So i had my friend try and help. I have disabled my dvd/cd drive, named. Hl- dt - st bddvd ch10f ata device. I have installed vcredist_x86, (c+ 2008, c+ something or other) and it installed fine (the c+ update). But trying to instal x64 (2005), it also says my "volume d" is full, even with the dvd drive disabled.
 
How can i over come this one tiny error message, and still get softimage? Is it something with gateway? My certain dvd drive? I have not done anything to my computer lately, other than install photoshop.
