(chuckle) That's what I use on the BSD box, I didn't think it was
available for MS?

Sorry for the confusion (the way my mind works, confusing for me too!)
It was a temporary storage location. I was re-configuring the BSD box
and wanted to back-up the data elsewhere.

I understand. But the drive that I am speaking about _was_ a subdisk in
a vinum 'mirror' before I stopped using it; therefore I was thinking
that the data is still on it (I haven't touched it since.) My
understanding was that Vinum _reads_ its configuration from the drive on
startup? So, I was thinking that if I re-connected the drive and started
vinum, vinum would read its config from there? Am I way off base here?
