    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"

    Thanks...TiminAz

    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.
