comment Can I have both Windows dynamic disk partition and some other non-Windows partition on the same disk?
Ah sorry, I've been misunderstanding. To answer your questions directly, no, it is not possible to force Windows to partially use a disk for dyanamic disks. If Linux is able to use the dynamic disk array, it should be able to write its own partition to it, but I don't know if that's actually possible. If it is, Windows would likely ignore the Linux partition(s), just as it would with a physical disk partitioned to something other than FAT or NTFS.

I wasn't originally aware of any way to "share" software RAID between OSes, but I did some searching just now and it does appear to be possible. I added a link to a blog post to my answer that discusses it. I don't know how reliable it is, but it's a start.

comment Can a non-redundant RAID5 cause any serious problems (compared to RAID0)?
I'll second the bit about the other drive failing and that a replacement is really the only true solution.

comment Ubuntu issues when moving hard disk to new system
You may get better answers from either Unix & Linux or Ask Ubuntu. That said, are you dd-ing the partition or the disk, and who are you doing it as (user or root)?

comment Can I make windows not move all my windows to a newly connected monitor automatically?
I no longer work with Windows for multi-monitor setups, either, but I've used Ultramon in the past, and it's a nice product. I don't know if either of those products will do precisely what Damon needs, but both offer a 30 day trial, so I'd try them out and see if either solves the problem.

comment How to copy files and directories to a remote host without rewrite a directory, just creating new ones
the recursive bit in the -a parameter means it will include subdirectories. If you add a trailing slash (folder/ instead of folder), it will only copy the contents of the parent. Without the slash, the parent folder will be copied too. Does that answer your question?

@Izzy thanks...I knew I was forgetting something!
