Create new spanned volume - Operation not supported by object

Q: Create new spanned volume - Operation not supported by object


I just bought myself an HDD docking station, and following instructions on lifehacker, tried to create a spanned volume, so that I can use two spare Western Digital 500Gb HDDs as a single 1Tb HDD.

All seemed to go OK until the last point, when I got an error "The operation is not supported by the object"

The two drives are fine, and the dock seems to work fine. I can format the two drives individually, and they show up in File Explorer correctly, but I can't crate a spanned volume.

Anyone any ideas? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Create new spanned volume - Operation not supported by object

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Create new spanned volume - Operation not supported by object

I would not bother. Spanned drives are PITA to backup, and if one fails life gets complicated.

So here's the situation: I have two 320GB disks that were setup as a spanned volume under XP Pro, hanging off a third-party PCI SATA controller. That controller has died. I know in theory, I should be able to replace it in the machine and the volume will still be there. However, this system MAY be totally dead... and putting it all back together will be a pain either way.

Is it possible to recover the volume by plugging both drives into a new machine using USB-SATA docks or external cases?? And if so, HOW?

Hi all,

First I'd like to say that I'm an idiot, I just deleted my spanned volume . I'm about to run the MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition v8.1.1 (free version), and just wanted to run this by you guys so I don't mess it up even more. Here's the setup I had that I am trying to recover.

Disk 0 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 1 - 64G NTFS System, Boot drive (C:)
Disk 2 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 3 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
Disk 4 - 1T Spanned volume (F:)
... a few others that don't matter
Disk 9 - 2.5 T iSCSI Spanned volume (F:)
So, I was trying to pull the iSCSI Disk 9 off the other spanned volumes on F:. I did a Delete Volume, and they all disappeared. Was I supposed to use Shrink Volume? Anyway, there were a lot of threads about recovering partitions, but none of them I saw had spanned volumes. Is recovering a spanned volume the same as recovering a single partition, multiple times? Or is there something I'm missing?

I am in the MiniTool Partition Wizard, and I see all of the disks that I want to recover. However, it doesn't allow me to select multiple disks. So the only option that I have with this tool is to go through the recovery process on each disk individually. Is this the right method? If so, how do I get the full spanned volume back after each disk is recovered?

Thanks in advance!

A:Spanned Volume Recovery

Just a quick update. I've been scanning the disks for partition data using the MiniTool, and it's come back with some strange results. Disk 0 shows an abnormally large partition. And after a long while of scanning, I haven't found any partitions on the other disks yet.

Even though the first disk is 931.51GB, after finding the partition, the MiniTool is displaying it as a capacity of 6167.3GB (the sum of the entire spanned volume). Does this mean disk 0 holds the partition data for all 5 disks, and recovery of this will undelete the partition on all disks?

Thanks again!

A friend of mine, not me, accidently deleted a spanned volume, One of the disks is an IBM Deskstar 80GB and the other is a Maxtor 200GB with 8M Buffer. The Spanned volume was a total of 190 GB (using unallocated space from both). The volume was deleted using the MMC utility from windows. I was wondering if there is any software out there that would me, not me, my friend, recover the data that was in it.

I had three 2TB drive spanned together into a single volume for all my media files. I had the hose on my liquid cooler break and dump all the coolant on one of the drives. It, obviously, is toast.

Now, I would like to get the data of the remaining two.

I have run two different recovery software suites (Easeus and File Scavenger) on them and only find about 1TB of data.

Is there any other way or did I really lose 4 TB of data?



A:Recovering data from a spanned volume

Wow, This was posted a long time ago. I think you may have already solved your problem, but Spanned volumes take the first disk, fill it and moves on to the next disk. For example:
If the 2TB drive that got trashed was the first, well you're ****ed.
If it was second, and no more than the drives capacity was full, you're ok.
If it was 3rd and untouched, you are good to go.
Word of advice: DO NOT FORMAT

I have a system with a spanned volume of five 2TB disks. Actually, the "disks" are all iSCSI targets (since Windows XP won't see targets >2047GB on my QNAP array)... but in any case, Windows shows all the disks as being present and the spanned volume as being "Healthy"... it just doesn't appear to be formatted any longer. The array itself (RAID5 with a hot spare) shows as healthy, and the SMART on all the physical drives shows fine as well. So all the components look to be good, I've just lost the NTFS structure.

Any suggestions on how to recover??

I have a spanned volume setup with 4 drives. One of the drives is starting to throw read errors which is preventing WHS from backing it up (Yikes!).

Is it possible to clone the drive with the errors and to reinsert a new drive into the array?

Can the new drive be bigger?


A:Can I clone a drive from a spanned volume?

You may end up cloning the errors as well. An imaging program capable of handling all four drives at once like the Acronis True Image server edition would be able to handle Dynamic volumes if that's what you are working with there.

The best time for any imaging however is while everything is working 100% to make your backup of the entire setup just in case something like this comes up. The imaging program used would back up each block to be restored on the new identical replacement drive in order to work.

Hey all,

I had a question regarding a spanned volume versus RAID 0.

I understand that RAID 0 uses stripping, and for that reason, if one HDD dies you lose the data of the entire array. However, what I don't understand is why people suggest the same fate if you lose a single drive in a spanned volume setup. Even the Wikipedia page for spanned volumes states that "if any disk fails, the data on the whole volume could be lost." The entire volume? That doesn't sound right to me...

My understanding of a spanned volume is that most files would only be on one drive or the other, and very rarely split. So, if one drive fails, the data loss would be very limited. I always assumed that with a spanned volume, data would just be written to where ever there's free space, so splitting files between multiple drives would only happen when free space is low. Are my assumptions wrong? Do files frequently get split between multiple drives? Or is that just some over exaggerated caution?

A:Spanned volume versus RAID 0 ?

That's due directly to the type of RAID setup you have...so for basic RAID setup (2 HDD's) that copies data on to both HDDs, you should use RAID 1. This method will allow you to remove any failed drives and replace with new drive and data will be transferred automatically with no data loss.

I have Windows XP installed on a 500 gig drive. I also have a collection of drives that are setup as Spanned Dynamic Volumes through Windows XP.

I want to re-install XP and wonder if the Spanned Volume will survive the reinstall?


A:Windows Spanned Volume Survive a re-install?

I am thinking it would be very wise to disconnect those spanned drives during XP installation, updating, driver installation, then reconnect them, and follow these instructions.

Scroll down to "Moving Disks to a Different Computer"

But as always, I recommend backing up Irreplaceable data first.

Hello all.

I have been researching this to no avail.

Here is the TL DR;

Old computer died which had two 400GB sata drives that houses a lot of family pictures and MP3s. The drives were dynamic and a 745 GB volume spanned across the drives. I now know these drives are also RAID-0, but I wanted to see if I could see any data on them and I had a USB sata dock. Learned the hard lesson that a dynamic disk wont be visible via USB no matter what (at the time I didnt know it was also a RAID-0) . I put the drive (which just happened to be the first drive) in my dock and somehow the drive got corrupted and became a basic disk. Pop up came asking if I wanted to format which of course I didn't. Odd thing is that the partition is intact (745GB) which causes the issue of not allowing me to convert it back to dynamic. It would seem if somehow I could just get it back to dynamic everything would work again or would be a heck of a lot easier to repair.

The issue is I cannot convert directly back to dynamic because it appears I don't have enough "free space" due to the partition reporting a 745GB volume which is correct.

I have tried multiple pieces of software mostly from Acronis, EASEUS, and Runtime (Disk Director, GetDataBack NTFS, Raid Recovery for Windows, and Data Recovery Wizard). Problem is these products don't fully solve the problem and I cannot reliably get the data off. The one product Runtime does have is raid reconstructor - but I am not ready to spend ... Read more

Ok, we have a really annoying issue at work at the moment with Outlook XP.

because we deal with alot of different jobs we use a job number system so everyone knows what goes where and whats going on.
The trouble is we may have 4 or 5 people working on the same job, sending lots of emails so to get everyones emails all in one place so that anyone can pick them up we've decided to use .pst files for each job example 10.001-inbox, 10.001-sent.

now it seems that these get corrupted somehow over time because when some users try to 'close' that pst file they get the following message
"Operation failed. An object could not be found"
so they're left witha redundant file in their outlook that cannot be deleted or hidden. The emails in that folder can be moved to another pst folder so that others can gain access to the emails but we're left with redundant files.

we have one guy who has at least 20 of these un-closeable files in his outlook. i really dont know how he does it.

Is there a way to removed these files? i've tried reinstalling outlook but i still get the files which i cannot remove. I'm assuming its a registry issue?

thanks for your time

Hi and Welcome to TSF

The error message itself can occur for one of four reasons (listed in order of likeliness):

1. You do not have a required TLB or ActiveX DLL/OCX file.
2. A TLB or ActiveX DLL/OCX needed by the project is present but not registered on your system.
3. The VB runtimes are an earlier version than the one you need to run the project.
4. A required TLB or ActiveX DLL/OCX file is corrupt.

Sounds as if you need to register the dll using regsvr32.
For example

It happens in Firefox (14.0.1) and Word (Office 2010) usually when I'm trying to save or download a file. It then crashes the program and sometimes my entire computer.

At one point in the last year, I had started to install Homesite 5 but wasn't successful as I could not find my serial number. But that was long ago and this error just started happening now.

I did search the forums here but found only one post that was never resolved or replied to.

SO grateful to anyone who might shed light on this problem.

I could see two types of messages being mentioned - one with "ServerAdmin" and another "FileProxy".
Which one are you getting ?
For FileProxy - MS-Knowledge base says there is a fix in Homesite's Readme file. But it appears these errors are associated with Homsite/Coldfusion. And this page, mentions unregistering some CF DLLs, did you try that ?

howdy all,

well... there is a number of similar objects of every User Profile of Win7 like Recent, PrintHood, NetHood, SendTo, etc - always living in 'C:\Users\.... user name....\' folder.

all these objects look like folders but with shortcut mark on their icons, so those are neither the standard Windows folders nor the standard Windows shortcuts... well it's like a folder with shortcut i.e. link function actually, which always links to the same name full size folder located in another place of User Profile.

so now I'm keen interested on how to create back such special object named 'Recent' that was first damaged by a not good cleaning software and then manually deleted by mistake.

Note #1: of course i know that the full size folder connected to this special object has a default location as C:\Users\...user name...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent. and there is no any problem with this folder in my case. it's alive and ok.

Note #2: also I keep an understanding that it's not so difficult to repair my current User Profile by a creation of a new user profile (and this special shell object will be likely created along with other default components of this new profile) and then copy my curent profile files into the new profile, and finally delete the old one.

I realise this may not be enough information, so please let me know what I need to do to find out any information that will help.

Many thanks.

I am trying to merge several years' worth of calendar items into a single new PST file for archiving, but when I try to copy many of my calendar items I get this error:
"Outlook cannot copy the items. The attempted operation failed. An object could not be found"

Using advice elsewhere I tried creating and using a new mail profile, but now Outlook just hangs when I try to open one of my existing PST files (the item pane just displays "loading...").

Can anyone advise re. why I might be getting this error when copying calendar items from one folder/PST file to another?

I'm running Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64-bit in a home environment (using Gmail/POP3).

Hello, and welcome to the Tech Support Forum :)


This problem can be a bit of a pain to diagnose.

Please download a copy of Process Monitor: Process Monitor

Get your installer ready to go, and just before getting to the error, start Process Monitor. OK past any Process Monitor Filter Dialogs without changing anything.

Start the installer going if necessary, and as soon after the error message has occurred as you can, select File > and UNcheck "Capture Events".

The important things to ensure is that Process Monitor was recording just before and just after the error message.

Then, go File > Save, Leave all options alone, just change the location to somewhere like your Documents folder, with a name you can remember.

Finally, please upload the file to a third party website (it will be too big for here).

If you have a Microsoft Account, Skydrive may be a good option: https://skydrive.live.com/

Make sure to set the file to be publicly accessible so I can access it, and send me a link in your next reply.

Fingers crossed it will be clear from the logfile what the problem is. Then we only have to work on a fix! But there is also a chance it will not be clear from the logfile. We will just have to wait and see.
