    Main M2 SSD is not Primary Partition in Disk Management


    Just as title says. Just checking my system for other reasons, and I noticed this.My main "C" M2 SSD, is not "blue" in disk management, the colour for Primary Partition. It's in green, as "Simple Volume". Sorry if this isn't the proper term in english, but I have my OS in italian.Is there anything wrong in this?

    Disk 2 (containing C, M, N, and a reserved partition) is a dynamic disc--rather than basic.

    Is that deliberate or unintentional?

    Dynamic discs are rarely seen and rarely desirable.

    The OP recognizes this and is asking is there a problem (and presumably, what to do)....

    From my understandings, a dynamic disk can be converted to a basic disk without loosing your data with third party apps such as AOMEI or MiniTools Partition Wizard but I've never done this myself so...

    You can see this video using MiniTools on how-to. As usual - backup data before attempting operation!!!
