Nowadays, dynamic disk becomes more and more popular among technicians since it allows users to create different types of volumes to enhance computer performance and data security. Nevertheless, after a dynamic disk has been partitioned, users will be unable to perform some operations in Disk Management unless they suffer data loss. For example, if volumes with data saved have been created, users can not convert dynamic disk to basic unless they delete all existing volumes; if users want to label a volume or change volume cluster size, all its files will be deleted. Well then, how to repartition a dynamic disk without losing data? Here, we suggest using third party partitioning program.
Among multiple partitioning tools we recommend using MiniTool Partition Wizard since it can help complete lots of partitioning operations on dynamic disk without data loss, including convert dynamic disk to basic, extend volume, shrink volume, move volume location, copy volume, change volume cluster size, change volume label, and so on. Next, let’s see how this partitioning program helps repartition dynamic disk without data loss. Note: MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition does not support operating dynamic disk, so please download one of more advanced editions.
How to Repartition Dynamic Disk without Losing Data
Firstly, launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to get its main interface:
In this interface all disk management functions are shown on the left pane, containing Copy Partition Wizard (clone a single volume), Convert Dynamic Disk to Basic, Surface Test (for bad sector detection), and Show Disk Properties. At this time, if we select a dynamic volume, all volume management functions will appear on the left side:
Among these functions Move/Resize Volume, Change Volume Label, Change Volume Letter, and Change Volume Cluster Size can help reparation the dynamic disk without losing data. Just choose the most suitable function and perform operations as MiniTool Partition Wizard told. At last, users should remember to click “Apply” button on the top left corner to apply all previous changes. That is because no operation will be made before we click this button.
