    The reason of creating new simple volume
    Now that the simple volume of dynamic disk is similar with basic disk partition, why do we create it? That is because simple volume can be managed more conveniently than basic disk partition. When users extend partition or volume, the partition can only be extended to the adjacent unallocated space. But volume can be extended to any unallocated space on disk, which greatly improves the flexibility of extending volume size. At the same time, basic disk has limitation that partition can only have 4 primary partitions or 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition, and it also limits the partition size. However, dynamic disk doesn't limit the volume quantity and volume size, which makes the use of dynamic disk more convenient and efficient.
