Bounty: 50

I had a computer with two 3TB HDDs that were Dynamic Disk mirrors of one another. I’m trying to recover data off of one of them without success.

So I plugged one of these 3TB HDDs into a USB3<->SATA adapter and, in Disk Management, see the new disk as an “Invalid” “Dynamic” disk. I right click on that disk and then click “Reactive Disk” in the resultant menu and get this error:

This operation is not allowed on the invalid disk pack.

Does this mean the disk is bad? I found lots of paid data recovery software that I can use and maybe that really is the only option available to me but I can’t help but seriously wonder if that’s also just the result of those software vendors just spamming Google.

I’m running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Build 1803.


Get this bounty!!!
