I know this is pretty lenghty but I've included the
details (I hope). If you read it and think you know
where I can get help, please let me know. Thanks.....
I have a an NT 4.0 SP6 server with 3 x 9.1 Gb HDs.
Disk 0 died on me and I found a very close 9.1 Gb
In Disk Administrator, all drives including the new disk0
indicate a 8676 Mb capacity. OK, so far.
Before disk 0 died, I had:
Logical C: mirrored from disk 1 to disk 0 at 2000Mb.
Logical E: striped w/ parity across disks 0, 1, & 2 at
Logical F: as the Primary partition on disk 2 at 2000Mb.
I'm attempting to restore the original state of disk 0.
I mirrored C: from disk 1 to disk 0 which consumed 2000Mb
as expected. However, the free space left is indicated
by Disk Administrator to be only 6669. I need 6675 to be
able to regenerate E: (6675 Mb) on disk 0 from disks 1 &
Disk Administrator indicates disk 0 capacity as 8675Mb
(same as disks 1 & 2). What's going on? Where is the
additional space and how do I reclaim it?
To make matters worse:
I thought I'd break the mirror of C: (it's now G:),
delete the partition and reformat disk 0 to recover all
space. Ha! Yeah, right!
I now have partition G: on disk 0 at 2000 Mb that is
active so I can't delete it and it contains NT system
files so I can't reformat it.
I only have 6669Mb of Free Space left to regenerate a
stripe set of 6675 - which doesn't fly.
What to do? Help is very much appreciated.
