    Dynamic disk created in error...how to remove

    Somehow unintentionally I created a dynamic disk partition on what was my boot drive but is now intended to be my documents and pictures folder drive.

    How do I get rid of the first dynamic partition and change it to a normal partition to store my 'Documents" & "Pictures" folders for the new Win 10 Pro drive C:

    Windows (Drive C ) is running fine.

    trying to set the default location for Pictures and Documents to the original (C) now drive (D)...want only 2 partitions when fixed - "Documents" and "Pictures"

    Hello Tim,

    If you like, you may be able to use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to convert the disk from dynamic to basic again without losing anything. I would recommend to backup anything you don't want to lose on that disk to be extra sage though.
