Dynamic Disks and Spanned Volumes on the Client PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • WHS has been happily backing up a PC which is set up with dynamic disks and spanned volumes across at least two of the 4 physical drives.

    Although WHS has backed up the files off the spanned volume OK, and without going through a trial restore just yet, is the WHS restore function able to cope with dynamic disks and spanned volumes without any problems?

  • Windows Home Server should have no trouble with that configuration. However, because of the way backups are treated, you will probably have to pre-create any spanned partitions before restoring them.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
