The LDM Components tab also allows you to manually disconnect or connect the components, for example, if they are such damaged that R-Studio cannot recognize them as parts of a broken dynamic disk. Select the object from the drop-down box and click the Connect button. R-Studio displays the objects it recognizes as the components of the dynamic disk in blue.
