Auto import foreign disk / share between 2 Windows installs

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I'm trying to figure out an easy way to use my Windows software raid mirror between two Windows installations.

My disks are configured like this:


disk1: 128GB SSD : Win10 install for gaming, work etc
disk2: 1TB SSD : Win10 for audio recording/production etc
disk3: 1TB HDD : Windows software RAID mirror (disk 1/2) for personal data
disk4: 1TB HDD : Windows software RAID mirror (disk 2/2) for personal data



if I choose to boot into Win10 on disk2, Windows won't see my RAID mirror, I have to do the import foreign disk procedure and the same when booting back into my other Wi10 installation.


I assume Windows 'marks' the raid in some way (changes the UUID or something?), however I'd like to be able to automatically have it imported before logging in when I change the Win10 installation I boot into.  I'd prefer to keep using Windows' built in software raid mirror as It's never let me down.


Would appreciate any help!
