Remove or break mirror

Jim Millar 1 Reputation point

I have created a mirror drive using AOMEI Backupper. I want to remove it. I have tried using Windows 10 Disk Managment tool but it doesn't recognize the mirror. I have tried reformatting the second disk but cannot do it. I do not want to lose the data on the master disk. I have tried getting help from AOMEI without success.

    Hello @Jim Millar

    As it seems the mirror is been done by AOMEI you must check their forums for any troubleshooting steps that might help you in your situation.

    First, you must understand the difference between the 'Break Mirror' vs the 'Remove Mirror'.

    The "Break Mirror" operation, will stop the mirroring on the selected volume, without affecting the data on any disk. (Data will remain untouched on both disks).

    The "Remove Mirror" operation, will stop the mirroring on the selected volume and destroy all the data on the mirror disk. (Data will remain only on one disk).
