I have a D-Link DNS-323 RAID enclosure, over a wired home network, with two 1TB hard drives (so 1TB with a backup.) I set up (through Computer management under administrative tools) a 500 GB dynamic Virtual Hard Drive on it, and backed up a system image of my Windows 7 Home Premium Laptop (about 186 GB used in total.) The next day, I tried to mount the VHD file, but got this error:

"The version does not support this version of the file format."

I googled the problem and read something about adding the line "strict allocate = yes" to a file called "smb.conf" to fix the problem, but I don't know where to find it. Is this the problem, and if so, how can I find this .conf file?

Thanks in advance.

I believe waiting a week is a good length of time before I ask again. I would like to have this dealt with before my laptop crashes, as it will eventually.

Thanks again.
