Can't Remove Mirror

By jjclark ·
I am running a Windows 2000 server with mirrored drives with both a C and D partition. One of my drives failed and I replaced it with a new one.

The old failed drive (which has been removed) still appears in the console with a status of "Missing" I have been able to remove the mirror on the C partition and rebuild it on the new drive. However, I can't delete the mirror from the D partition to move it to the new drive.

The D partion shows a status of "Failed Redundancy" on both the good mirror and the failed drive. When I try to remove the mirror from the old drive (which is no longer the in the system), I get the following message:

"The requested object is is active use, operation not allowed"

When I try to remove the mirror from the current drive, I get the following message:

"The mirror cannot be removed because the mirrored volume is currently regenerating. Please choose another mirror or wait until the volume is done regenerating."

I have waited for 72 hours now, and still no change. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
