Dynamic Disk Unreadable after redoing PC

By kobie ·
Please help.

In my stupidity I redid the installation on
one of my Win2k Professional Boxes without first copying the data of the secondary drive wich was assigned as a dynamic disk.

The primary drive had a hardware failure and
was replaced.

The machine has three 20 gig drives of which
only the second was created as a dynamic disk

Disk manager keeps on claiming that the drive is an unreadable dynamic disk.

I urgently need the data that still resides
on this drive.

Thankingall in advance.

See Microsoft Article Q236086 for info. Not quite your situation, but may help. Also, try swapping the drive to another Win2K machine and see if it is recognized properly there.

A tool can fix unreadable dynamic disk.

by sliesw In reply to Dynamic Disk Unreadable a ...

For dynamic disks, the Unreadable status usually results from corruption or I/O errors on part of the disk, rather than failure of the entire disk. I found a called Dynamic Disk Converter can fix a unreadable dynamic disk. Related topic: http://www.dynamic-disk.com/dynamic-disk-unreadable.html
