If you upgrade Windows NT 4.0 to Windows Server 2003, any legacy FTDisk (fault-tolerant disk) sets shares will no longer be shared.

This behavior occurs because Windows NT 4.0 FTDisk sets are not fully supported by Windows Server 2003.

NOTE: You can use the Ftonline tool, from the Windows Support tools, to gain access to your data. See Fault-Tolerant RAID Volumes or Volume Sets Displayed as 'Failed'.

After you use Ftonline, you can make the shares temporarily available:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after each:

net stop dfs                              net stop browser                              net stop server                              net start server                              net start browser                              net start dfs
NOTE: The DFS and Browser services are dependent on the Server service.

NOTE: The recovered shares will only be available during this boot. Rebooting will loose the shares.

You should backup the data, delete the data, and recreate the data as Dynamic Volumes.
