Does WLOC Beta 2 works with dynamic disk? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     

    I was wondering if WLOC Beta 2 works with dynamic disks compared to WLOC 1?

     

    I reaaly like WLOC but I do like also dynamic disks for management purposes.

     

    Will Microsoft work on this issue or are we condemned to use solely basic disks?

     

    I have about 1,5T to manage on one PC.

     

    Thanks for any answer.

  • Well, Thank you.

     

    I hope it will; that would the cherry on the cream pie.

  • Well, OK. Why? Will it? When? Will the release version?

     

    And did I mention, why?

     

    What on *earth* does the storage subsystem have to do with a ***FIREWALL*** ???

  • I'm no expert, but I believe that the reason it causes a problem is that the nature of the Dynamic partition causes any application residing on the Dynamic partition to appear as a new unrecognized program *while* it is executing, so it gets blocked automatically.

  • I do think the same.  It has also to do with hashes. The dynamic partition causes the hashes of the applications to be changed or something like that...

    Nonetheless, I still hope that Microsoft will work on that.  It is unconceivable that WLOC get into the big fight and does not allow to use dynamic partition while storage habits evolve around the world. Did I mention that I have 1.5 Tb to manage on one of my PC.

    BTW, Home server is not out yet ...
