Thread solved

I have 3 physical disks merged into two volumes (D:\ and S:\) using dynamic disks as Spanned Volumes GPT.

I have made a mistake of changing volume letter from S:\ to T:\. Since then all phisical disks are unavailable. In Disk Manager status is "offline" and "invalid". Any attempt to launch Disk Director - throw exceptions - "LDM data is corrupt".

1. If i plug\unplug each phisical disk will it make them visible? Will i be able to restore all data by creating a dynamic disk again?

2. Can i change volume letter back and restore functionality?

3. If i understand correctly i can edit LDM database using HxD or Sector Inspector. What should i look for to change letter in LDM database?

4. Is there any other product except Disk Director that i can buy and use to solve it?

Somehow your post ended up in the TrueImage 2020 forum rather than the Disk Director forum. What version and build of Disk Director are you using? I suggest reposting in the Appropriate forum.

You should change the drive letter back to what is was originally, that should allow you to have access to the volume.

I was able to solve my problem. Using https://dmde.com/.

I scanned physicalDisk's and recreated partitions including LDM database to access files.

Copied all essential data to backup and formated disks.
