Windows 10: Partition Change created a Dynamic Disk from a Basic Disk
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.
Appreciation to all who read this and those who respond with my next advised move (if any).
I need to determine the Dynamic Disk Type for external enclosure (with 2 drives). The MFT is broken on one drive, and I need to figure out how it was set up to accurately assess the recovery effort. Anyone have any suggestions or smart tips? Thanks...
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...
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...
Running windows 10, due to some personal reasons want to change my dynamic disk to a basic disk.But the option for the same is greyed out in Disk Management.If anyone posts a guide to accomplish the same I would be really grateful:)
