Dynamic volume copy

  • As computer plays an important role in our daily life and work, data stored in the computer become more and more important. To avoid data loss, we should take many measures to protect data, such as storing data on other partitions except system partition, paying attention to heat dissipation of hard disk, and not receiving mails with unclear origin. The safest way, I think, is to copy all data out from the disk. At this time, some people may say they are dynamic disk users and they can not copy data with software but backup manually while back-upping manually will cost a large amount of time. In fact, we do not need to perform such troublesome operations. Although data are stored on dynamic volumes, we can copy them to other hard disks after converting dynamic volume to basic partition. This method can copy data out faster though it is a little troublesome. However, we can not covert dynamic volumes to basic partitions directly under Windows operating system unless we delete all dynamic volumes to convert dynamic disk to basic disk. Therefore, to copy dynamic volumes, we must ask dynamic disk manager for help to accomplish conversion without data loss. It is very easy to convert dynamic disk to basic disk and copy dynamic volumes with dynamic disk manager. To perform all these operations more safely, we must select a professional dynamic disk manager. Here, I recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard, an excellent dynamic disk manager developed by MiniTool Solution Ltd.. I believe everybody can accomplish copying dynamic volumes safely, conveniently, and fast.
