    Accessing dynamic partitions externally?


    I have a hard disk of my 4 old laptop which has dynamic partitions.
    Here's an old post describing it.

    Merging dynamic partitions?


    I am trying to access its data via using an external casing in an another laptop but it is not showing up in the windows explorer. I see this in windows disk management.



    Checking in diskpart gives me this.


    What should I do to access its data externally?

    There are some BSOD issues happening in the old laptop which are preventing it from booting up normally. I'm going to sell it anyway. So instead of fixing the BSOD issues, I want to access its hard drive externally on another machine to take backup.

    You cannot access dynamic disks in external cases. You have to attach them to an internal SATA port.

    Yes. That's what I found while digging the internet after posting here on forum. I'm searching for a workaround and access it externally.
