On a new system, new load of Windows 11 Home, the New Mirror Volume option does not show up for my two M.2 data drives, but the Simple, Spanned, and Striped options do show. How can I mirror my drives?

    Open Command Prompt as Admin and copy paste the following command and hit the enter key :

    msdt.exe -id DeviceDiagnostic

    Mirrored volume might be missing from your PC because of the corrupted file system.

    Run Check Disk on your System Drive (C), using the command line, type the following and hit Enter:

    chkdsk /f C:

    Still does not offer me the "New Mirrored Volume" option in the drop down (not even a grayed-out version). Ran suggested fix several times in various permutations, updated motherboard and SSD drive firmware and drivers, and ran the Windows updater, but Disk Management shows Drive 1 & 2 as Basic, Online, no drive letter, Unallocated and drop-down still only offers options for Simple, Spanned, Striped, Properties, and Help. Tried Dynamic Disk instead of Basic, too, and they are currently GPT. Using a MSI Z790 Carbon motherboard, i9-13900 processor, Windows 11 Home (flash drive), WD_Black SN850X drives in M2_3 & 4 slot (off Z790 chipset). Any more suggestions on how to get the Mirrored Volume option to be offered?
