Mirrored volume is widely used for Server users and personal users. A mirrored volume is a hard disk or other form of storage media that stores an exact copy of the data from another volume. It is used for fault tolerance, which means mirrored volume serves as a backup device in case the primary device fails. Companies and Enterprises that store critical information typically "mirror" the data on another drive. Using a mirrored volume decreases the chance of losing data exponentially. Mirroring may also be referred to as RAID 1.
AOMEI Dynamic Disk Converter can convert dynamic disk with mirrored volume into basic one and supports operating systems including Windows 7/8/Vista/XP and Server 2003/2008/2011/2012. But before do, you need to break or remove the mirrored volume into a sample volume by Windows Disk Manager, and then use the converter to make the disk to basic one.
1. Run Windows disk manager by right click "My Computer" and select "Manage" ->
"Storage" -> "Disk Management", right click the mirrored volumes and choose "Remove
Mirror" or "Break Mirrored Volume" to make it becomes a sample volume. If the
windows system volume is mirrored, you can only choose "Remove Mirror" to remove
mirror. The following is a example.
2. After executing the above operation, the mirrored volume on the dynamic disk
will become simple volumes, and then you can use Dynamic Disk Converter to securely
convert it into basic one as follows.
See "How to use Dynamic Disk
Converter?" to learn the detail steps of the conversion.
Additionally, the "Convert to Basic Disk" operation can only process dynamic disk with simple and mirrored volumes. The other types of dynamic volume like spanned volume, striped volume can be clone to basic disk by using Dynamic Disk Converter.
