    Partition Change created a Dynamic Disk from a Basic Disk


    [Apologies if I have posed this in the wrong place; thanks for moving it if necessary!]

    Good morning Folks!

    I thought this would be simple: 1TB HDD with Two 500GB Partitions E: & Z:. Having available space in E: and needing more in Z: I performed a "Shrink" on E: of 75GB then "Expanded" Z: to the full amount available. I was warned it would change the disk to Dynamic (thus not being able to boot from it; I thought this would not be an issue as it is a secondary data disk). I ended up with 3 visible partitions with 2 named exactly the same and acting as one. e.g. "Properties" on one is identical to the other.
    Attachment shows details.
