Q: Dynamic HD recovery

Hey ya ll I did something very stupid I am using windows xp pro and I changed my C drive from basic to dynamic The drive only had one partition which had the MBR on it I was clicking too fast and didn t read that message that I would not be able to use the boot partition on the disk I tried to reboot but now the HD is inaccessible BIOS can see that the HD is there but when I try to boot from it I get a quickly flashing BSOD which I have no time to read I tried to do a repair on the drive using quot fixboot quot but that didn t work When I used the quot map quot command to Dynamic HD recovery view the drive information there is a next to the name and size of the drive I also tried Dynamic HD recovery to install a new HD Dynamic HD recovery and on the blue setup screen it still showed the next to the dynamic HD it shows as a dynamic disk and it said that the drive was non-XP compatible If I wanted to install xp on the new HD I had to delete the partition on the dynamic disk I don t want to do this because I want to keep the info on the disk I disconnected the dynamic HD and installed xp on a new HD I then reconnected the dynamic HD and wen t to computer management It shows as dynamic but it is unreadable When I go to properties it shows Disk Disk Type Dynamic Status Unreadable Partition style Master Boot Record MBR Capacity mb Unallocated space mb Reserved space mb Is there any way that I can get this disk to work without changing it back to a basic disk and losing all of my info Help nbsp

Preferred Solution: Dynamic HD recovery

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have been having trouble removing spyware etc from my XP Pro machine, I decided in the end the best thing to do was a complete format.

I had recently converted my HD and it's 3 partitions to a dynamic disk, without thinking whilst going through the XP text setup, I clicked delete partition for C:\ and created a new one, this in turn deleted the dynamic disks, I never clicked format after I had created the new partition and quit the installation.

I removed the hard disk and put it in another XP machine, I can see the 3 dynamic volumes using the disk management tool and the all say failed, I cannot get them back online or figure out how to repair them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Dynamic Disk Recovery

You can try importing the disk via disk manager to see if you can't recover the data on the other two volumes. You may need to use a recovery software that supports dynamic disks.

A:Dynamic to Basic Disk Conversion to do recovery (have bad registries)

Keep in mind that the HP preinstall is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utiltiies which interfere with better versions built into Win7. Most tech enthusiasts won't even run that install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 . Until then you'll never even experience Win7's native perfect performance.

The problem is that you converted your HD to Dynamic which is only meant to be used to span a partition across multiple HD's. Apparently you didn't see the warning message when you added a partition.

You can only have four Primary partitions or 3 Primary and unlimited Logical. Had you asked us we would have advised you that to keep HP Recovery and Diagnostics tools (OEM) partitions bootable you'd need to convert C to Logical to add another adjacent partition.

The solution to reconvert to Basic non-destructively is to boot free Partition Wizard CD version 4.2 which is the last one which offers this as a free feature: ISO - Windows Live.

Download the ISO, rightclick to burn it to CD using Windows Image Burner, or use ImgBurn.

Back up the files on H partition which tipped disk to Dynamic which will need to be deleted before disk will convert back to Basic. If it won't boot you can Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console.

Boot CD, follow these video steps How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?

After conversion to Basic, set C to Logical then create a new adjacent Logical partition for Win8:

A:Unbootable after changing to dynamic disk. Win recovery can't see disk

We only see problems with RAID and Dynamic disks here. Dynamic is intended to span a partition across multiple HD's. RAID isn't even redundant since many lose everything if one disk fails. So I would not do it.

When, how, and why did your hard drive become a "dynamic disk"??

It should be "Basic" in nearly all situations.

Exactly, I say exactly, what happened when you tried to use Partition Wizard to change to Basic?

I was told by the ISP, by two different CSR's, that I need a Desktop switch in addition to my Linksys WRT400 router. I purchased the D-Link 8-Port Gigabit Desktop switch and connected everything correctly. Although the internet works on both machines, they are still showing the same IP address.

Hi. I'm doing something with a game that requires me to have a static LAN IP. I previously assumed that all LAN IP's were static. Until i saw that my LAN IP kept changing. So it must be dynamic. Anyways, if anyone could supply me with a link, or software, please post it! Also, i am using a Linksys Router, if that makes any difference.

A:Dynamic LAN IP

Is it your public IP address, or the local 192.168.x.x IP address that you're concerned with? If it's your local IP address, you can configure it to be static, but you can't do mucy about the public IP address supplied by your ISP.

A:Dynamic IP and NAS

No it's not true. But the implied setup you are talking about is to directly connect your NAS to the internet which is a major no no especially since it's a work NAS. If your office has an IT person, I would inquire about setting up a remote access setup like VPN access in combination with using a dynamic DNS service.

I have written a few Fortran programs that uses dynamic arrays but couldn't find this feature supported in another language. Does anybody aware of such possibility in another language as I am thinking transferring the programs to a more modern alternative.

The dynamic array can be called by the stating element number in a vector and change into a 2 or 3 dimension array inside a subroutine. It is very useful in calculations, like sparse matrices.


In the main program

Dimension A(10000)
Call another (A(1), A(101))
Subroutine anther (c, d)
dimension c(100), d(10,5,7)

In the above the c(100) occupy the first 100 cells of vector A and d matrix follows with the next 350 cells. In application the dimensions of the matrices can be variables too.

Currently I can only compile the Fortran programs into .exe files and execute them in a shell from within Visual Basic.

I think I have a layman's understanding of what DDNS is and does. It fills the communication gap between something that requires a static IP and something that has an IP that changes from time to time. Based on that assumption, here are my questions:

Can someone use more than one DDNS service for the same dynamic IP?

I have (partially) installed a Samsung brand surveillance system on my home. Samsung offers a remote viewing service (that so far seems to me to be arcane and spotty) that I understand involves DDNS. Do I need to use their DDNS service or will any DDNS service work as well?

The server blocks the player from entering by blocking their IP. The Type of IP i have is a Dynamic. My ISP is COX Cable Internet. Ive already tried a few things to fix my problem, i tried calling my ISP to ask them if they can change my IP. They told me that the way they have it set up is that large groups of customers share the same IP. And that the servers force this IP on the modems. I am wondering if anybody knows any way to change my IP. Any suggestions would be great.

A:I.P Dynamic or fixed.

If it costs nothing to have the static IP address, IMO it's a no-brainer, take it! If you ever want to setup a server of any kind, the static IP address will make the task easier. There's no real downside to a static IP address, since the Internet hackers do address scans for their victims anyway.

i have a 500gig primary hard drive for windows
2 320gig drives stripped ( using windows dynamic disks )

question, can i add part of the 1.5t drive into the raid ? and use the remaining 1.2t ( ish ) as a seperate disk ?

will i need to partition the 1.5t first or can it be done through windows disk mananger ?

A:dynamic disks

Hmm... I don't think you can do that... RAID works at block level, meaning if you add the 1.5TB to the already stripped 2x320GB, then you'll be wasting the 1.2TB(-ish) and only use the 320GB off that 1.5TB disk... But Intel Matrix RAID can do that (IIRC)...

$c $f

I would create a page with 6 textboxes,each editing one of the variables.Then,it would create a dynamic image on the server containing those variables.I would also like a little background image if that is possible.Can anyone tell me if it's possible,and then tell me how to do it?

Hi all.

I'm a consultant working for several customers. I usually need to connect to their computers through internet. Some of them use dynamic ips so I have to call on them to ask for the ip to be able to make the connection ....

I wonder if there can be an "automatic" solution for this...

I don't want to use no-ip or dyndns, as they will always have all my customers IPs and DNSs! Also hackers prefer to attack sites using static ips.

I imagine something that sends me the new ip every time it changes

Thank you in advance.

I m working on a machine that s got the main G disk as basic and the slave G disk as dynamic OS is w k I don t know much about dynamic disks What if any are the advantages to having just the slave disk dynamic From what I ve read it seems that all the disks should be dynamic for maximum advantage Will the main drive being disk Dynamic basic and the slave dynamic cause me any problems The slave is used for data storage and storing ghost images of the Dynamic disk OS partition As it is I m unable to view the contents of the ghost image with Ghost Explorer The final setup I m trying to create has the main basic drive partitioned with G for the OS and G for data The slave dynamic drive is to contain synced copies of the data folders from the main drive The slave is in a removable HDD tray I m thinking that it would be best to wipe the slave and convert it to basic Any thoughts are appreciated nbsp

A:Dynamic disk

the only time you really need a drive to be dynamic is when your using it as some kind of back up, like in a RAID situiation or if you wanna span the volume of the drive into multiple drives.

it sort of sounds like your doing that, so you may want to leave it.

I have a healthy and functional Dynamic disk under Vista 32bit. This volume is spanned over 5 physical disks, all of them almost full.
I just purchased a NAS that supports 6 physical disks.
My intention is to somehow use my older disks but to achieve that i would need to progressively move my data to the NAS while freeing disks from the Windows RAID and moving them to the NAS.
How do I do that?
I mean is it possible to move data out of my Windows RAID freeing a specific physical disk, then removing it from the RAID and do it again and again until all the Windows RAID is dismantled?

Is there a way that I can have Windows auto configure my IP settings, so that when I'm connected to my home network, it uses the static iP settings I have, but when I'm at school or anywhere else, switch back to dynamic? Normally I have to go into the settings and turn it on and off every time.

A:Static AND Dynamic IP?

Its called alternative configuration. As long as you don't have a dhcp server at your house.

If you do have a dhcp server at your house you can setup a reservation on the dhcp server (router normally) to get the same ip address each time you connect.

Alternative configuration is in the ipv4 properties.

Hi guys.
This looks odd to me.
I'm trying to set up a FTP site on my PC to use for backing up data from my office. In order to do this I was going to give my PC a static IP. It does seem to take the address I give it BUT it then looks like this, like it's a dynamic set up................ (See attached) It does keep the static details I give it. I checked using ipconfig.
Can I rectify this or is there a reason for this.

A:Static IP looks like Dynamic

Are you connected to a network at work for which you are not the network administrator? If so, your administrator has probably pushed a Group Policy Object down to prevent you from doing exactly what you are trying to do.

If you are doing what I think you are doing, you may be in violation of this forum. Might want to check with your administrator.

My question will I get charged from my dsl provider( Verizon) for not using DHCP?

A:Static Ip or Dynamic?

You are confusing between an EXTERNAL (PUBLIC) static IP and an internal (private) IP. When you disable DHCP, you assign INTERNAL static IPs to the various computers on your INTERNAL network. When DHCP is enabled, this job is done by the router dynamically. Neither of these options affects your public ip address.

In short, your GATEWAY (router) has your Public IP address, and the computers in your networkhave private IP Addresses. So, there is an outside and an inside. Anyone "out there" can see your public IP, but only machines inside your own network know each other's individual private IP addresses (dynamic or static).

Your ISP will charge you if you request a PUBLIC static IP. E.g., if you want to host a website or a server from your home. With a static public IP, anybody can type that into the address bar and be directed to your website. E.g. typing into your browser will take you staright to Google because that is Google's public IP.

A:dynamic range and sum

OK, lots of stuff going on here.Let's start with the snippet of code that you included in response #1. It is very rare that you need to Select on object (e.g. a Range or a Column) in VBA in order to perform an operation on it. You can typically reference the object directly in the same line as the operation.Each of these types of instructions...
Selection.Delete...can be replaced with this:Columns("J:L").DeleteFurther, you can reference the entire set of Columns as one Range. For example, this instruction will delete the existing Columns J, K, L, N, O, P.Range("J:L,N:P").DeleteNote: The major difference between that instruction and the way your code is written is that your code will delete certain columns, which will shift the remaining columns to the left. You now have to determine the "new" column letters before you can reference the additional columns that you want to delete. The single instruction that I suggested will delete the existing Columns J, K, L, N, O, P without any need for you determine any new Column letters after each of your deletion How can i delete the last entry of every column and replace it with this above condicion?This answer depends on whether or not all of your columns are the same length. Since you are familiar with this instruction, you already know how to determine the last cell with data in Column A.LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).RowIf all of your columns are the same length, then you use LR as the Row designation for all columns. If not, things get a bit more complicated.Another way to reference a Range is with the Cells method. The Cells method uses RowIndex and ColumnIndex arguments to designate a cell.For example, Cells(1, 1) references A1 as does Cells(1, "A"). Cells(3, 4) and Cells(3, "D") both reference D3. Therefore, these instructions are all equivalent:
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).RowIn addition, you can reference a range using the Cells method as follows:Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(3, 4))That instruction will reference A1:D3If your columns are all different lengths, then you need to determine the last cell in every column separately, which you can do by looping through your columns and using a variable for the ColumnsIndex argument. e.g.
For myCol = 1 To 6
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, myCol).End(xlUp).Row
Once you determined an LR for each column, you can use that value to place your formula in the last cell of the column:
For myCol = 1 To 6
LR = Cells(Rows.Count, myCol).End(xlUp).Row
Cells(LR, myCol).Formula = "=SUM(" & Cells(1, myCol).Address _
& ":" & Cells(LR - 1, myCol).Address & ")"
NextThe same method can be used to designate the Dynamic Ranges for your Sort routine. Use the Cells method with variables for the RowIndex and ColumnIndex arguments.If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

How the DNS server on our ISP works? Say there are 5 computers connected to the router with same name AJ-PC but with different ip addresses. Will this not create duplicate records for AJ-PC?

A:DNS dynamic update

The router handles DHCP/DNS matters for your private network and handles lookup requests to the external DNS. The ISP doesn't see the computers behind the router at all. Giving them all the same name isn't the best idea. You should probably rename them AJ-PC-1, AJ-PC-2, and so on.

It's complaining that the C drive (that's Drive 0, partition 2) is a dynamic volume, and it's on the same physical disk as your Win8 partition. Any disk that contains a dynamic partition can not be used to install a boot volume in Windows 8, so since the disk has dynamic partitions, you get this error. Boot volumes should really never be dynamic other than testing, and even that would be kind of silly.

If so the solution to solve this non-destructively is to boot free Partition Wizard CD version 4.2 which is the last one which offers this as a free feature: ISO - Windows Live.

Download the ISO, rightclick to burn it to CD using Windows Image Burner, or use ImgBurn.

Boot CD. You will need to delete the extra partition(s) you created which tipped it to convert to Dynamic before it will convert back to Basic.

Then follow these video steps: How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?

After conversion if you want help adding a partition post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map with listings, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, attached using paper clip in Reply Box.

If you're not sure whether you did this then post back the screenshot now.

I have a batch file that was originally designed to copy some files from a floppy disk to the c: drive. But because floppy drives are slow, i decided to use my pen drive instead, but the drive letter of the pen drive changes depending what computer it is in. Here is the batch file that i have at the moment:

@Echo off
cd C:\program files
md [email protected]
xcopy A:\[email protected]\*.* C:\Progra~1\[email protected] /-y
regedit /s A:\Folding.reg

Is there a way i can change it so that A: changes to the drive letter that the pen drive has been assigned?

I shrank my C: drive about 40 gigabytes so I could make a backup partition. Once it finished it changed all my partitions except the boot one to dynamic, even the C: drive. Is this fine? Will it ruin anything or will I need to change my C: drive back to basic or primary? On my laptop my C: drive is blue on the bottom Disk 0 line and on the list its listed as basic.

Welcome V look mate am no expert but what exactly were you trying to do - if it was just backing up why not just use an external drive?

Dynamic IP address questions
Hey I have a dynamic IP (ADSL) and Ive a couple of questions about it.

1: Does the IP ever show the same address twice. after checking a few times Ive noticed its always different but does it cycle or repeat eventually?

2: Could someone determine my physical address from my dynamic IP?
would it be to the country or city or street?

2: Can they determine my IP belongs to me even though it changes every time I connect. ie a link between the IP I get before I disconect and the new one generated when I reconnect?

Thanks and sorry if the questions seem odd.
I value my internet security and anonymity.

Have a play with Disk Management in Basic volume Dynamic vs Computer Management here are a few questions if somebody can enlighten me What is the major difference between Dynamic and Basic Volume It seems Dynamic volume can let you change the size of the volume up Basic vs Dynamic volume or down when there is an adjacent unused physical space without impairing the files already stored However Partitions Basic Volume can only be extended and will always requires reformating Is there anything else I missed It seems that Dynamic Volume has a lot more overheads so it Basic vs Dynamic volume may be a little slower and actual file stored will be less any opinion on that I did notice one of the Dyname Volume started to show massic missing storage space e g Used Space of GB only has GB realy files on it absolutely no hidden files there because I created the volume This happens after shrinking and expanding it up and down a couple of time BUG If so it is a serious one Dynamic Volume must be used for Mirroring

Hello ffrree, welcome to Seven Forums!

It is really a bad idea to fool with Dynamic on a Operating System Hard Disk Drive, it has the potential to disable Windows and a clean install is often the only way to correct for that.

I need help in reactivating a Reactivating Drive Dynamic dynamic drive Here s the situation I inadvertently formatted a new WD GB SATA drive as dynamic Once I noticed it I setup another WD GB drive to move the data and reformat As luck would have Reactivating Dynamic Drive it my Gigabyte GA- KNXP mobo went out I installed a new Gigabyte board did not have to reinstall or repair XP When I did that the dynamic drive shows offline The BIOS sees it as does the various recover Reactivating Dynamic Drive tools Acronis and R Studio Here s what I see as my options - Reactivate through XP disk management I m a bit skittish to try for fear that there could be something destructive Am I safe in at least trying this - Restore through Acronis or R Studio What are the pros cons of this method - Send to a data recovery service Suggestions I have always maintained a double backup drive system This time though I was caught a disk transition and have no meaningful back to the data Tom Thanks for any help nbsp

A:Reactivating Dynamic Drive

Hi Tom,

If you have R studio why don't try looking for data with it. I would advise strongly against reactivating with Xp disk management. Especially when the disk is showing offline.

this should help you handling the drive when using R studio. Pros of R studio or any recovery program is that it should access the drive without writing anything to the drive only reading data and reconstructing it.

How can I access Data on a Dynamic HD, via USB ext. HD case?

NONE of this data has been deleted, so I don't need an UNdelete program. I simply need to bounce the data off the drives, convert the drives back to Simple, & REbounce the data back to the drives.

I have 3 HD's that I need to pull data off of. 2 x 250Gig WD & 1 x 1TB WD. All were Data ONLY drives (D:\, E:\, & F:\).

Win7 & XP only allow me the option of converting the Dynamic drives, to Basic, which wipes all data from them.

Yes, I know that if I plugged the drives directly into a mobo SATA port, I could move data at will. However I only have 1 working SATA port on this POS temp mobo & the C:\ drive is using it.

Anybody have any ideas?????

How to Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk
Relevancy 33.54%

Hi there! I'm new here, I hope somebody can help me. I tried searching the forums and found nothing . I'm trying to learn a little VB ( I really know very, very little) and have run into a problem. I have a dynamic range, which I try to increment by 1. Here is the line I use: Range("fixnewdate&quot.Value = Range("fixnewdate&quot.Value + 1 where fixnewdate is the name of the dynamic range. When the macro runs, it seems to just ignore this line, and nothing happens. However, in DEBUG mode, with the F8 key, it works fine, and increments properly. I don't get it..... When I add a watch to the range, I get this: Watch : : fixnewdate : : Empty : Module10.acceptanplay. I'm pretty sure my range is defined correctly, if I reference it in the sheet it gives all the correct values. Please help Joe

hi i need to change from dynamic IP to Static for work, Iv rang my provider talk talk and the only way i can do this is go to a buisness line and pay more a month is there anyway i can log into my router and change from dynamic to static myself? im not on about the IP thats starts 192.blah blah blah its the one where u go somewhere like mine is dynamic as it changes if router is reset, there is hiccup in internet or computer is off for the night etc... i really need to try to change this to static without forking out more money if possible.

A:Can i change from dynamic ip to static

Few, if any, ISPs provide static IP addresses with their lower cost service contracts. It's quite standard that static IP address(es) are available only with business service. However, you are welcome to call the other ISPs serving your area to see if they have cheaper rates.

During Windows 7 installation I divided my disk into logical parts and installed OS on drive C. Then I decided to make another partition through disk management after installation was complete and this is where all problems started. It turned out
that dynamic partition was created and it changed the behaviour of the whole disk. Now I can't delete partition that has OS installed on it which I could do during reinstallation.
Here is a screenshot:
Partition colored yellow can't be deleted through reinstallation process and I can't change it back after reformatting. Does anyone know how I can get rid of it and revert my disk back to regular state? This is pain in the neck.
