    Are you saying that we can ignore the request in storage space interface to "upgrade this pool..."?
    Yes, at least for now. It is not mandatory action. (I misunderstood that you already did it.)

    Imagine this scenario: the computer fails entirely and you need to quickly attach two mirror disks into different Win10 system with 1909 build...

    you are entirely helpful
    thanks again

    The pool upgrade, we did not do that.
    Just the big windows update.
    Honestly, I didn't even know it was a big update.
    Was it a big update?
    Anyway.
    If we have system failure of the type that you are imagining, will I be able to take a disk from the pool and just line it into another computer?
    I will be happy to get back online in a new system with one data disk.
    Whatever place we end up, I can always recreate the mirror somehow.
    And the Office.
    And the Outlook, and the Carbonite, etc.
    I think.

    Be well!
    What do you think?
    Is recreating the mirror on the spot more, or less important than getting my brother back on task with clients?

    Yes although transferring of both mirrored disks is safer.

    Even though the VirtualDdisk (Two-vay Mirror in your case) is in Degraded or Rebuilding state, data files are still retained and accessible.

    Thanks again, I have a better grasp of the situation now.
    Screw 1909 anyway, we're not looking back!
    just kidding.

    The main issue is just to keep him working, in case he's in the middle of a project.
    In event of catastrophe,
    If either disk will function, even as an external drive, then he can work from another computer.

    Hi All,

    I'm new here and in a similar position. Original build was on Windows 10 Pro Workstations, single processor, and not upgraded from Windows 8. I am using a parity pool, not mirrored.

    Even though the setup was on Win10 I was asked to upgrade the pools anyway, which was definitely done way back in the past.

    I've now just upgraded to 2004 not knowing there were any issues and I also now get the message to upgrade the pool again.

    The pool setup is parity; it is not mirrored and I am not experiencing any problems. I've read there are problems with storage spaces in the 2004 upgrade but cannot find any recent information on the current status.

    Have the issues been resolved, is it now safe to upgrade the pool or should I hold off?
