Convert dynamic disk

  • Windows users know all Windows operating systems released after Windows 2000 Server support dynamic disk, so it is possible to convert basic disk to dynamic disk because of mistaken operation or curiosity. Once we convert basic disk to dynamic disk, problems will come gradually. Although dynamic disk can merge two or more physical disks to a logical disk which facilitates managing disk, common users will not install several disks in one computer. Therefore, once common users convert basic disk to dynamic disk, troubles about disk management will come, let alone experience advantages of dynamic disk. At this time, many users want to convert dynamic disk to basic disk.
