    Clone a dynamic system disk? Acronis cannot. Workaround? other way?

    not sure how or why my current system SSD is dynamic, but the fact that it is is keeping me from cloning to a different SSD in preparation to migrate to a different box.

    Acronis True Image 2016 will not clone dynamic disk and does not seem to be able to make it a simple volume.

    I have not been able to find any satisfactory solution yet, maybe someone in here can point the way to one.

    Hi, this may help, assuming you actually want a basic type of disk rather than one used for RAID or spanning multiple volumes:
    Change a dynamic disk back to a basic disk: Storage Services; Local File Systems

    Macrium Reflect Free PRO version (paid) can do this.

    I think AOEMI can do it as well but again, will cost you.
